ICANN election.com not working reliably

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----

I've tried the election mechanism this morning at nearly the earliest 
possible time, and after proceeding through all the pages, and verifying 
my choices, suddenly the page indicated that I could not proceed at this 
time.

First of all, that's a terrible error message.  Content free.

Secondly, I noticed a very long URL at the top of my page, most of 
which was not visible.  I copied it into a text editor:

https://vote.election.com/icann/error.asp?critical=yes&desc=
Component%2EApplyVote+failed&errnbr=50101&errdesc=Invalid+credentials%2E
+Your+member+number%2C+PIN+code+and+password+combination+is+incorrect%2E

Now, that's dandy.  If I'd mis-entered my credentials, I'd expect it to 
tell me on the first secured page, before entering and verifying my votes.

Since I'm just copying and pasting, I'm a bit surprised that there was 
an error.  Just in case, I tried it on the ICANN member pages.  It still 
works!  So, it looks like there's a problem in the verification system.

I know it's Sunday, early in the morning, but that's when the Board 
chose to start the voting.  Hopefully, somebody is checking for errors.
