Electronic Voting and the 2004 Elections

|

Electronic voting is leaving us open to voter fraud that will make the Florida fiasco look like an honest election. Watch this video.

Cast a practice vote here.

I had intended to put up my own essay here, but Bev Harris has done an outstanding job of defining the problem in her book.

UPDATE!!!

(From http://www.talion.com/blackboxvoting.org.htm)

Oct. 17, 2003 They've taken out BlackBoxVoting.com, the site owned by the Black Box Voting publisher, for the third time in a month.

This is another bogus spam complaint. The first time: It was a bogus spammer, some religious looney web site who sent spam referring to us and then notified Spamcops. Their web site was not taken out, we were. We were cleared of any involvement and the site restored. The second time, it was a hacker that said "I told you to leave me alone!" This time, it is another bogus spam complaint. We are awaiting an answer as to what the offending "spam" was and who complained. We do have an opt-in list of activists; I have saved all the opt-ins, and if a mole opted in and then filed a bogus complaint, I will find this person and sue for damages. The sister site, BlackBoxVoting.org, which I own, has been shut down due to a Diebold demand.

Somebody REALLY doesn't want you to read this.

Are you good with statistics? Download an Excel file with all of the statistics on the California recall election, sortable by county, voting machine type, and candidate. Take a look at the graph near cell G85. Decide for yourself. Was this a "practice run" for the Presidential election of 2004, siphoning votes from nearest competitors to candidates with no chance to win? (Note: I am not questioning the voter's intent to remove Davis, or Schwarznegger's legitimacy, only the paperless touch screen voting machines.)
