There's also no question that the biggest story is whether the use of electronic voting machines would let the Russians (or someone else) rig an election:
The cynic in me thinks that the two political parties loved electronic voting machines because they saw the opportunity to do industrial scale voter fraud. Certainly there was a rush to deploy these after the 2000 election. Of course, security was not an after thought - 15 years later we're still dealing with what was well known at the time.
And now everyone is worried about the Russians rigging an election? Good grief.
Bring back paper ballots. You need physical access to tamper with them, so you can't do it from Minsk ...
