Let's hope you're right. But, let me suggest that you think about the issue from time to time. And remember that the issues include not only information security, but securing infrastructure, ballot security (why would any sane person connect a voting machine to the internet?) and a host of other things.
I don't think Plan A is working or is likely to work. I'm not wild about my Plan B, but it's possibly doable. What's YOUR Plan B?
