But right now, they’re doing it rong!!!
According to an exclusive report in Salon:
Diebold voting machines can be hacked by remote control: Exclusive: A laboratory shows how an e-voting machine used by a third of all voters can be easily manipulated
Voting machines used by as many as a quarter of American voters heading to the polls in 2012 can be hacked with just $10.50 in parts and an 8th grade science education, …
Good thing our educational system is so borked that nobody has an 8th grade science education!’
But seriously, this is serious. I personally believe that the only valid voting technique is filled-in paper ballots which are initially read my machines, results audited, and if necessary, hand counted. I do think that the paper ballots could be produced by a machine. You go up to the machine, pick your choices on a touch screen, etc. etc. and then the ballot is printed out. You then submit the ballot in the usual way. The advantages of this would be: a) The lizard people effect does not happen and b) there is an instant preliminary count that might be more accurate than counting machines.
You do all realize that this is a conspiracy to end democracy as we know it, right?
