I voted. Yes, we know.

Just to make sure you are aware: today we have general elections in the Netherlands. Of course you are – like the rest of the world – holding your breath and anxiously awaiting the results: we all know that changes in the Dutch government will have a profound impact on the global economy, politics, and culture alike. And I’m not even mentioning the Antarctic ozone hole.

It is sort of pity though, that some of the voting computers appear not be entirely safe. A recent investigation suggested that a certain type of e-voting machine emits radio signals that can be tapped from several dozen meters. A very smart hacker would theoretically be able to detect the images on the screen, thus monitoring the choices of voters.
