Win your election using a MITM attack

Electronic voting has very little to do with computers as we use them today, that is, our web-sites are porous and our networks are fungible, our browsers are petri dishes for crime to grow spores in. So when using conventional networking and typical corporate policies, of course, you just design in the backdoor in plain sight. A real electronic election system would look nothing like what we use today, and we will not see a good electronic voting system until we are brave enough to actually build something as fundamentally independent from the Internet as our water or gas mains are.
