Ars Technica shows how to steal an election

This is not some nutbag ranting on a street corner, this is a highly-technical, well-researched study on how one would go about stealing an election. Turns out it's not that hard.
Over the course of almost eight years of reporting for Ars Technica, I've followed the merging of the areas of election security and information security, a merging that was accelerated much too rapidly in the wake of the 2000 presidential election. In all this time, I've yet to find a good way to convey to the non-technical public how well and truly screwed up we presently are, six years after the Florida recount. So now it's time to hit the panic button: In this article, I'm going to show you how to steal an election.
