        When people showed up in several North Carolina precincts to
        vote last November, weird things started to happen with the
        electronic systems used to check them in.  "Voters were going
        in and being told that they had already voted -- and they
        hadn't," recalls Allison Riggs, an attorney with the Southern
        Coalition for Social Justice.  The electronic systems -- known
        as pollbooks -- also indicated that some voters had to show
        identification, even though they did not.  Investigators later
        discovered the company that provided those pollbooks had been
        the target of a Russian cyberattack.
