Actually, it was a student election at UNC-Chapel Hill, where voting is all
***online***. You have a user account, so I guess it's not truly anonymous,
but everybody who is eligible has a log on so no discrimination issues
potentially like with drivers licenses. I suppose if someone was really
serious about it, they could try to hack it. For them, cost and ease of
voting is much more important. It's interesting to compare discussions
about elections here with the way things happened there.
