Lawmakers of both parties want more scrutiny of the companies…

Electronic “voting” systems have one purpose only: they make it easy to rig elections, hide it, and get away with it.

“Researchers who study election systems say they cannot tell the public about all the weaknesses they find, for fear of being sued if they violate non-disclosure agreements the companies have imposed.”

“You’ve got several of the biggest companies [that] won’t answer questions — basic questions — about if and how they’re securing their own computers and the voting machines that they sell to states…”

“In the end, researchers found “laughable” flaws in the machines… “…stuff that was just fundamentally insecure and fundamentally low-quality design.””

Lawmakers of both parties want more scrutiny of the companies whose equipment and software does everything from store voter data to record the vote.

  1. That is quite an article Monta. It shows how determined the rabid GOP are to force the issue of voter ID. I recognize that the investigation which Trump has called for will likely be very contentious and force us to do a great deal of work, but I am in favor of the issue getting the full attention of the American public in the search for the failings of the elections systems. Part of our effort should be to be sure that the investigations into the inadequacies of our elections go far enough and don’t just end with the question of voter ID and voter fraud. At the very least we must make sure that the investigation gets into an examination of “election fraud”. What we really should be pushing the Trump administration for is an analysis of the “State of our Democracy”, from stem to stern.

  2. Appreciate your assessment of the article and of course the situation and couldn’t agree more!! The author did on an occasion or 2 in the article mistake the terms ‘election fraud’ and voter fraud’. To your point, the comment thread was also educational. A thorny issue. We may find common ground in the record-keeping area! I’m sure we all agree and want our records accurate and safe from any human hands-on or human-technological mischief…! We probably all feel okay with or strongly agree with citizens being the voters allowed. You should watch the meeting on this and read the other article on this and changes TX is instigating – posted in last 24 hours… Thanks for your insight all, George Ripley and TBE working group members*** Thanks, tremendously*** Join a working group, everyone!!!

  3. Headline is essentially a lie, there no confirmation of a “massive” voter fraud scheme. All they found was a few people improperly registered. I think the issue of Voter ID may be a good one to discuss, with all that said. Our Social Security card is still a pathetic paper card which is never updated and has no biometric information (such as a picture). The question is, should we improve the SS card and create a “citizen card” which allows someone to vote, get medical care, work etc. instead of relying on a hodge-podge of rules that can be rigged. Doing this can eliminate rigging that may be possible on both sides. Rs want to block voters through oppressive registration and ID schemes, while Ds want looser rules that some claim allow voter fraud (but so far all evidence is that there is no “massive” fraud going on and it would really be hard to do so, although rigging the other way to suppress voters is absolutely happening.) Pumping up voter fraud claims is fuel to allow oppressive registration and ID schemes.

  4. While we understand the difference here in voter fraud and election fraud, as 2 subjects, there good information in this article that confuses the issue. So , with education (us*) we can get good information from these sources and what others think, how to respond, interact with others, some who may be on our page in some areas or might get there with our skill and openness to that…As Ray Lutz later posted, there is something to learn from this – not entirely fake news…Thanks, all!!!

  5. I am not sure that I trust “news” from to be objective.

  6. We aren’t trusting the Tea Party’s objectivity, acknowledged… we do glean information that is at minimum their position/message*** That is also important and some facts…also…that we know to be true already if we’ve been watching this**** Thank You^^
