Time for a review: The testimony of voting software creator Clint Curtis, before members of Congres

As we have many new people here, you should be informed of some of the greatest work ever done together here, on DU. Our government knows all about our voting machines, and they make many laws making sure we can't even look inside, at the source code. Touchscreen or scanned ballots, it's how they are all tallied, and it's electronic. The audit is inadequate and doesn't even check/verify half the vote in many states. Florida is the worst example of election law. Listen to this quick testimony before members of congress:

3. K&R. Thanks for posting.

I hope you don't mind my posting this link to a related thread I started a couple days ago--hoping to get a larger sample of DUers to sound off about election theft via electronic voting machines:

4. America chooses to be this way

It'd be easy to go back to paper optical scanner ballots. They can be verified and tested and the entire election can be run backwards to match a vote to a voter.

It would even be easy to make an electronic voting process that would be audit proof, meaning every vote could be verified and proof of tampering or none could be verified & each vote could be tamperproof and verifiable.

This isn't nuclear physics; it is basic techniques used in financial transaction processing.

We - our government - chooses repeatedly to go with a method of voting that is insecure, unreliable, and unverifiable.

We - the People - do nothing.

Conclusion: America doesn't really care about our own vote.

6. A better conclusion

is that Americans have been systematically disempowered to have any real say on the matter.
