    We need to do away with any form of electronic voting that can be manipulated by an outside source. This was bound to happen. There was a show called Heroes that used to come on NBC. There was a kid with the power to control machines. He changed the results of a Presidential election. If you watch ABC's Scandal, they had a similar scenario where an electronic voting machine was tampered with ultimately changing the results of the election. Now, the show may be fiction, but a lot of life is imitating art.

    The fact that the computer addresses seem to originate from overseas doesn't mean as much as might first sound. The IP addresses can be faked by sophisticated hackers. Even worse, the program could actually be running on a computer located overseas in fhe form of a virus, with the owner/user totally unaware of it.

    This is one of the functions that needs to have secure computer systems. The movie "Man of the Year" with Robin Williams is just one example that computer systems need to be reviewed and made secure.
