Computer scientists sounded this alarm years ago before electronic voting machines became a thing and they were just in testing phases. Not a single legislature body demanded actual policies to address the concerns. The laws governing ATM are a million times stronger then voting machines for a reason, our politicians looked at voting machines as easy election rigging devices and forced them on the population to continue their stranglehold on us.
Two words: Block Chain. If the voting machines are not open source, decentralized, and trustless from here on out, they can’t be relied upon. Voter ID laws do not matter as much as a decentralized and easily auditable electronic system. Fake IDs and software manipulations will continue to occur with the current systems until votes can be tied to specific locations and exact times.
It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.
By any chance, do these particular voting machines just so happen to be in critical districts that can swing important states like Florida, Pennsylvania, and Ohio? Or states like Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Colorado, Nevada, and Arizona?
I wonder what the numbers were really like in 2016 or Alabama or Virginia...
this and voter IDs should be some of Trumps #1 concern
Looks like were going to have to go back to hand counting votes. We'd better get started on this movement well before the next election
Are his machines in Alabama?
Most likely reason Hillary didn't bother to even campaign in several critical states. She understood they were rigged sufficiently to not matter. She was wrong.
My thought also. Wonder if Sessions will investigate?
I regret I have only one upvote to give. Instead, I gift thee a brick.
I’m sure Soros would never want to swing an election. (He would)
Let’s please never have electronic voting machines. What a stupid idea. Hand counted paper ballots only
That's the quote that immediately came to mind when I read the post title.
Anyone who understands how a database works could tell you this was going to happen.
In the case of Moore, once again it was the liberal district who posted last so they knew how many votes they needed to win. This has happened frequently in other states as well.
We have been warning on this for years. It is the most dangerous aspect of Soros' plan for his Global Empire; once enacted, no one can challenge a vote - it is virtually untraceable, and no one is ever rhe wiser...
it is how they first took Venezuela.
In 2014, Smartmatic’s CEO Antonio Mugica and British Lord Mark Malloch-Brown announced the launching of the SGO Corporation Limited, a holding company based in London whose primary asset is the election technology and voting machine manufacturer.
Lord Malloch-Brown became chairman of the board of directors of SGO since its foundation, while Antonio Mugica remained as CEO of the new venture. They were joined on SGO’s board by Sir Nigel Knowles, Global CEO of DLA Piper, entrepreneur David Giampaolo and Roger Piñate, Smartmatic’s COO and co-founder.
The aim of SGO, according to its CEO was "to continue to make investments in its core business (election technology), but it is also set to roll out a series of new ventures based on biometrics, online identity verification, internet voting and citizen participation, e-governance and pollution control.”
My guess is 98 percent of the black people that voted for fucking Obama wouldn't have voted for an old uncool white dude in a mid-midterm that only matters for one year.
Hear hear. Pain in the arse but a lot less susceptible to fraud
They should use blockchain tech for voting. Cant be faked or altered. Every person could log into the block explorer and view their vote. And it would be totally private.
something like this should happen. I couldn't help but be pissed off that after the election I couldn't log in somewhere to find out what the system has me down as voting for privately. I will never know if they actually counted my vote as for Trump or Hillary. I cannot check. there is no way of doing it.
Also, Oregon and Washington have gone to all mail-in ballots. Wonder why?
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD GET THIS PATRIOT A BRICK! THAT'S 92764 BRICKS HANDED OUT!
We are at 14.3729786758% of our goal to BUILD THE WALL starting from Imperial Beach, CA to Brownsville, Texas! Lets make sure everyone gets a brick in the United States! For every Centipede a brick, for every brick a Centipede!
At this rate, the wall will be 1075.60783291 MILES WIDE and 353.884929776 FEET HIGH by tomorrow! DO YOUR PART!
I do not have a FB or a twitter. We need to push this on Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson. This is bull shit. I live in Alabama and something stinks here.
Get these fucking computers the hell out of our election system. Who got paid off to give the green light to this in the first place? It does nothing but exponentially increase the likelihood and ease of committing voter fraud. It's also a lot harder to trace any crime committed than if paper ballots were used.
Even better, pede!
On 11 May 2017, President Trump signed an EO into voter fraud, headed by VP Pence.
Go back and read POTUS' tweets when Judge Moore "lost". Trump said he knew Moore would lose (he knew in advance Dems would use several methods of voter fraud to win), and that GOP would have another chance in that electorate very soon (words to that effect), when that seat doesn't come up for re-election for >2 years. (The election will be nullified).
POTUS + AG Sessions monitored the Alabama election, witnessing the voter fraud. One aspect was the voting machines flicking write-ins (for a 3rd party) to the Dem candidate, when the paper ballots were counted by the voting machine.
That's why Judge Moore hasn't conceded yet. AG Sessions is launching an investigation.
I wrote this here following the election, and got downvoted to buggery, with one abusive person writing "stop lying you f***" (he used the word) and insisting the machines couldn't change the paper vote. He was so rude (never seen anything like it on T_D!), Mods kindly deleted his comments. His rude reaction suggests I'm hovering right over the target.
SPEZ: remember, the Alabama election was to fill the seat vacated by Sessions when he left to become AG (A GOPer filled it temporarily until the election), so Sessions knows Alabama voting patterns and methods better than anyone else on the planet.
As much as people here like to rag on the UK (perfectly understandable), all our ballots are counted by hand. This computerised nonsense is open to manipulation. Why not just count them by hand? Just have separate, colour-coded papers for different races.
It's the plot of that Robin Williams movie, Man of the Year . Very scary stuff.
Like Broward county in South Fl....Wasserman Shultz's district....election night it got called at like 1:00 AM
Interesting he is part of the MASSIVE number of CEO who have resigned in past month http://www.crainscleveland.com/article/20171213/news/145516/diebold-nixdorf-ceo-andy-mattes-steps...
