IEC Website ASP.NET bugs

I was just wondering why the IEC website seems so buggy.

It appears to be running in debug mode, so I am pretty sure that the detailed ward report was being blocked earlier because .NET thought the query string looked suspiciously like an XSS (cross site scripting) attack. It now seems to have been yanked from the site. Fixing the problem should not be too difficult.

Of course, things are probably different in the trenches and I'm sure that people are working hard to fix the errors, but it would have been nice if the bugs had been ironed out before the elections.
