The next generation of Israeli elections is proposed to run on an e-voting system which uses near-field RFID tags instead of plain paper ballots. In 2010 we investigated the system and identified several potential attacks which can be launched against the proposed system. In this work we report on the actual implementation of two of these attacks – zapping and jamming. These attacks have a critical effect on the security of the proposed system.
