2% of Finnish municipal elections votes lost due to bad UI design

“The results of the election may have been affected, because the seats in municipal assemblies are often decided by margins of a few votes”

The saddest part of the story is that the ignorant fuckers who wanted privatized e-voting (or any e-voting) sold Finland’s Democratic process to Tietoenator, a company to which most sensible persons wouldn’t assign the task of drawing a flash-based Goatse.

TE previoulsy provided the voting system for the Finnish Parliament, a project plagued by delays and instability (link in Finnish).
