WASHINGTON STATE QUARTER ONLINE BALLOT BOX STUFFED

Steve Pradier forwarded an article about electronic ballot-box
stuffing in the online voting for Washington state quarter designs.

"Talk about your two-bit schemes. Robotic computer programs
stuffed the online ballot boxes in a contest for Washington's
official state quarter design over the weekend, forcing technicians
to suspend voting Monday while they retooled the Web-based poll.

State officials overseeing the balloting realized something was
fishy when the poll, launched last Thursday, swelled to more than
1 million votes during the weekend."
