Meet Command Central, the People in Charge of Wisconsin Voting Machines

"Command Central is one of Wisconsin’s leading vendors of voting machines and election supplies. They are distributors for Dominion Voting Systems, a privately-owned electronic voting equipment company. Founded in Canada in 2002, Dominion is now based in Denver, CO, since their acquisitions of Premier Election Solutions, from Election Systems & Software (ES&S), and Sequoia Voting Systems.

Command Central deals directly with Wisconsin county and municipal clerks and is closely involved in their selection of voting machines, ballots, and other election supplies. Command Central does all the maintenance on the voting machines and provides tech support throughout the year, with a special 'hot line' should clerks need help with glitches, etc., on election day.

In June 2011, the Wisconsin County Clerks Association held their annual summer conference in Ladysmith. Seventy-five county clerks from across the state came together to, among other things, 'assist the legislators in developing sound legislation that affects county clerks and county government by providing accurate and useful information.' WCCA Legislation Committee chair at the time was Kathy Nickolaus."

1. How many people said, "fuck it, it's all rigged anyway" and didn't bother?

We could have used them today.

2. We need to find out if it was. This just doesn't feel right, you know?

 

These bastards will resort to any and all levels of hook and crook. Eternal vigilance is the price of freedom.

18. Probably very few. Why, do you think that recognizing a problem means opting out? I find the

opposite to be true. I don't know a single Democrat who is informed about the fraud in our election system who chose not voting as a solution. Nor have I ever seen anything to show that this is a problem.

What you seem to be saying is that we should not talk about this disastrous system at all, which I could not disagree more with. That is how it got so bad, because of that kind of thinking, sorry.

4. Yeah, hopefully not. This needs a giant spotlight put upon it for a great length of time.

6. it's a depraved and demoralized version of Democracy

that lets private for profit corporations control the voting apparatus



From the article: • Do not vote on touch screen machines. Call your clerk before Election Day and insist on voting on paper. Refuse to vote on the DRE touch screens and offer to send your clerk information on the dangers of these machines. See a list of all Wisconsin clerks here.



If they steal our vote, they steal our voice and they steal our power. Stand up and help change election systems in Wisconsin. This is not an issue of “left” vs “right.” It’s “right” vs “wrong.”

13. PAPER BALLOTS...what a novel idea...

Ballot counts could be well scrutinized by rep. of both parties in each precinct and results submitted 1-3 days later, however long it takes to GET IT RIGHT! It is absolutely insane to trust results of these machines and their internal vote-flipping capabilities! Elections have such devastating consequences! Waking up the day after POTUS election this Nov. to the victorious face of Mitt Romney is terrifying!

17. This company is evidently run by just two people out of the same strip mall Michelle Bachmann does.
