    Here is some video of a Diebold machine being hacked as a demonstration of how vulnerable the machines are. this hack is not new, but the video is worth watching if you have not seen it before.

    And here is some news I had missed from Humboldt County. This county decided to make a second set of records of the ballots in the primaries and the general election to compare against the official tally. In this case, Optical Scan machines were used, the machines that Diebold has acknowledged drop votes. What is surprising here, is that when the eletion officials made the second set of ballots available for independent audit, they immediately found that 197 votes had not been counted by the Diebold machine. In other words, without the backup for independent audit, we would not have known that 197 votes were missed.

    The argument for transparency is pretty strong.

    We have not had a clean election in some time.

    The republicans thought they had a permenant majority and this is the reason why.

    The founders system still kicked their asses.

    that is total BULLSHIT
    did you notice the need for a KEY to even access the port
    and then you dont think anyone would notice someone opening it up?


    come on people
    use your brains


    PS: the machines without the extra paper trails were ORDERED that way, not Diebold's fault

    well, since the dems won so big this last election, did someone put a bug in the machines to make THEM win?
    how come the validity of the election is not questioned when the dems win?

    No the Dem votes were too numberous for the fix to work. They only can switch a certain percent of the votes and it was not enough this last couple of elections.
