Black Box Voting (Expanded)

by C/O Diogenes Wednesday, Jul. 23, 2003 at 2:50 AM

Touch Screen Voting Machines with no Auditable Trail and no way to confirm the accuracy of the Vote are a really great way to steal an election. You need to know about this and how to fight it. If you wish to live in a country with honest elections that is.

This is an updated list of the list of Black Box Voting Links to Articles and Web Sites. I will periodically update and repost this set of links as more data becomes available.

Voting Fraud is not a new issue; it has been with us probably as long as there have been elections. There is always some crook who perceives it as easier to steal what they want than to procure it honestly. However, that aside, prior to the advent of the Electronic Voting Machine there has always been a paper trail to follow in proving an election fraudulent. The Electronic Voting Machine presents the perfect way to steal an election. There is no paper trail and no proof of an individual Voter’s intent that is independent of the Voting Machine. Anyone who knows anything about Programming knows that a clever Programmer can construct a Program with multiple exploitable holes in System Security. There are multiple known instances of this having occurred. Just do a search on it and you will find reams of information on the topic. Hackers have made a Profession out exploiting those holes for their own amusement and profit.

This is perhaps the key issue to activists, and all concerned citizens, at all points on the Political Spectrum. If you do not have honest elections Political Activism becomes NEUTERED. It leaves only Civil Disobedience, and the greatly undesired armed rebellion as venues for enacting change and reform. I am not joking when I say that. With fully automated rigged elections we are no longer free - we just have the illusion that there are no Bars on the Windows.

This is too important to ignore.

The official spin will always be to discount any “irregularities”. You can count on Diebold’s PR Shills to be visiting Web Sites to try and counter any adverse reporting. I would expect the other Electronic Voting Machine Companies to do the same. After all this is their business and it represents a lot of money and Patronage.

You can also expect Shills for insiders benefitting from these crooked machines to be active as well. Certainly a Politician in Office because of a rigged election is not going to want that exposed because there goes the “Gravy Train”.

The objective in a vote count is an honest count not a "convenient" or even "fast" count, but an honest and true count.

If the programming of a Black Box that is not transparent and 100% traceable by a verifiable Audit Trail it is subject to covert manipulation.

Think for yourself. Analyze the arguments both pro and con. Examine the evidence.

If you are not outraged you are not paying attention.

MP3 of Bev Harris Interview (Courtesy of Ziggy)

Bev Harris talks with Dennis Bernstein about her discovery of riggable voting machines and questionable software code, including software code that might be used to associate votes with the personally identifiable information of voters. The latter is something she is still investigating, but the main thrust of her story is beginning to be picked up by the alternative media. // mp3, 48kbps, Runtime: 15:44
