You know I follow the vagaries of computer voting machines, right? Here's an interesting article about how one e-voting machine maker is trying to prohibit a researcher from studying the security (= trying to hack into) one of their machines:
"Princeton Professor Edward Felten astonished Congress and increased doubts about electronic voting two years ago when he showed a House committee how easily he could open a Diebold touch-screen machine, insert new software and alter vote totals.
Now, Sequoia Voting Systems, the other large voting-machine maker, has sent Felten an email suggesting legal action if he tries the same thing on its equipment." (from the Wall Street Journal)
