Backbone Magazine has quite a good article about the online voting in Markham.
November 10, 2003
What If They Hold A Vote And No One Shows Up?

It covers the security and coercion issues.
It also talks about the compulsory voting in Australia, which I think is the solution to low turn-out.

Markham had a Flash-y website:

http://www.markhamvotes.ca/

UPDATE 2004-10-05: I think this is both hilarious and sad. The Markham site is gone (presumably their domain name registration expired) and has been replaced by a junk placeholder / domainsquatter site.

The Slashdot story was headlined 1st Real Internet-Option Election in North America
