> Flaws in the ACT's electronic voting system could have changed the result of the 2020 poll, cyber security experts say.
> The errors did not cause the wrong candidates to be elected at the October 17 ballot, but the experts say it was only through 
> "good luck" that the seat contests weren't close enough for the flaws to be consequential.
> The report recommended changes to the ACT's electoral laws to open the system up to public scrutiny so that serious "errors and 
> vulnerabilities" can be caught.
> "We are going to risk that the Legislative Assembly does not reflect the will of the people."
> Mr Cantwell couldn't provide an immediate response to the report's findings because of their "nature and complexity".
