Possible Path To E-Vote Theft [View all]

And how Anonymous blocked Rove out.

Note that Rove was in denial about the Ohio totals, showing that he did not believe what the official state numbers were showing, because he thought he had it setup for his own numbers to be coming in

****************

On each county election office computer are read/write pages showing vote totals.
(Read/write means that you can write to that screen and read what was written and rewrite it so that it reads different. On DU you are working with a read/write program.)

As the numbers are entered at county level, a networked computer reads the numbers and can change those numbers at will. The data entry person at the county computer is updating so much that they can't keep track of any changes.

If the count is from a DRE -- Direct Recording Electronic -- there is no data entry person. The numbers are written from one networked computer to another without any human oversight.

OpScan numbers are also transferred electronically: from a read/write memory stick.

So, there is a Rove operated networked computer with a human sitting there looking at the numbers coming in and editing those numbers as the person sees fit. Those new numbers are sent over the network to the county computers, changing those numbers sight unseen. It doesn't even have to be a human, it could be a computer program reading and writing.

****************

What Anonymous claims to have done is place an administrative password on the network system keeping the person at the Rove keyboard from logging in (much like you log in to DU) thereby stopping Rove's people from accessing the network.
