The road to hell is paved with good intentions

From Reuters comes news that overseas people are finding themselves unable to access a site set up to ease absentee ballot submission:

The Federal Voting Assistance Program's Web site offers U.S. military personnel and American civilians living abroad information about voting by absentee ballot in the Nov. 2 election, with links to state election sites.

But security steps put in place to halt hackers have instead blocked an unknown number of Americans overseas from accessing the site, www.fvap.gov, said Lt. Col. Ellen Krenke, a Pentagon spokeswoman.
