Ok, two words? Effing cool.

Swiss to protect voting data with 'unbreakable' quantum encryption

A new "unbreakable" encryption method will be keep votes safe for citizens in the Swiss canton (state) of Geneva in the country's upcoming national elections, officials said Thursday. The city-state will use quantum technology to encrypt election results as they are sent to the capital on Oct. 21, said Nicolas Gisin of the University of Geneva.

A computer in Geneva, provided by the company id Quantique, will fire photons, or particles of light, down a fiber-optic link to a receiver 62 miles away.

How effing cool is that? I mean... photons included with your voting experience?

My only question? How is it that Switzerland... a politically neutral country was the first to implement such advanced technology, hmmmm?
