One week until mid-term elections

(Printer friendly version)

Mid-term elections in the United States are a week from today.

In the spirit of Halloween I invite all my family & friends to read How to steal an election by hacking the vote (also conveniently available as a PDF) and ponder on the fact that it would only take one bad apple... (no, not that kind of Apple Rachael! ;-)

Oh, and potentially that one bad apple could be in a whole nother country...

Reminds me of listening to the Doug Wright show on KSL (something I generally avoid doing) prior to the primary elections earlier this year. Doug's guest was either the Lt. Governor or someone from his office who was on talking about the new electronic voting machines that were going to be used for the first time. When asked whether people should be concerned over the security of electronic voting the answer was something along the lines of "well to tamper someone would have to be willing to commit a pretty big felony." It struck me as absolutely one of the dumbest things I'd ever heard anyone say—ever.

If you're too busy to read the Ars Technica article then at least watch this relatively short video please.

I was going to vote with an absentee ballot this year, mostly to protest the use of these machines by the state of Utah. Unfortunately, I didn't make it a priority to get a ballot requested, so I'll be touching-screening.

Utah is using the Diebold TSx model, which appears to feature at least minimal paper-trails that are voter-verifiable at the time of voting, although I don't think they are machine readable.

Elections have certainly been tampered with before, this just gives a nice clean way to go about it. Even with a paper trail that records actual votes, who would go to the trouble of recounting when no tampering is obvious.

Well, I dont agree with Lt.Governor as well, there has been felonies and use of hacked machines in prevoius elections for instance 2000 and 2004 (remember Floria recount and IOWA in 04), but nobody was ever convicted so what guarantees we have this time somebody is going to be convicted . Also ,they have more sophisticated ways than hacked machines to tamper elections results for instance Voter Intimidation ,dirty political ads and adding preachers into list of felons so they can't vote

The Cyclops at the three o%92clock date window is a patent of Rolex. In fact, Cyclops is hard to be imitated by imitation watches . Although it%92s just a small date window, it has a lot of sweet details. First the numbers are completely centered. Second, the magnifying glass magnifies the date by 2.5 times, and it is always 2.5 times. Finally, the Cyclops lens is directly above the date. This means that the date will occupy the entire glass bubble, and you can see the clear date from all directions. If you see the date number off-center, the magnification is incorrect, or it is difficult to see the date from the side, then this is a Replica Tag Heuer Watches .
