The Digital Voting Bust

This story caught my eye on Slashdot. It seems that voter turnout in a recent election dramatically dropped. To the tune of 83%.

From the original story

For the first time, Oahu voters had to use computers or the telephone to vote for their neighborhood board candidates and many people did not bother.
About 7,300 people voted this year, compared to 44,000 people who voted in the last neighborhood board race in 2007.

It begs the question as to whether or not this demonstrates some degree of voter fraud? Wouldn’t that be funny?
