In this paper we present three formal performance models, using PEPA, for three types of misbehaving voters when using the DRE-i e-voting system. We use the constructed performance models to study the impact of the intervention of misbehaving voters on the throughput of four main actions of the DRE-i e-voting system. Our performance analysis reveals that the three types of misbehaving voters have a negative impact on the throughput of the DRE-i server actions.
