If anyone is successful, they could get a cash reward.

Hackers - no matter where they are in the world - are being invited to register online and have a go at cracking the system.

The federal government is keen to move to electronic voting and is investing CHF 250,000 in the system.

If a hacker can prove they can break into the system and change a vote without being detected, they could get a bounty of up to CHF 50,000.
