Sanctitiy of Elections vs. Low-Impact Cost Cutting
Since 1967, I have been continuously engaged in the design, manufacturing and deployment of a very broad range of computer-based control systems, including some of the most sophisticated weapons system ever devised by man. My business today provides complex and highly secure building automation systems for jails, courthouses, hospitals and other sensitive customers. My comments are not unqualified.
Not once since computers emerged in the 20th Century has anyone developed an electronic data acquisition or control system that cannot be compromised. I am referring to the very real threat of electronic voter fraud. For this reason, I ALWAYS use paper ballots.
True, there are means to defeating paper ballot votes, but any person with ordinary intelligence can detect voter fraud, when using paper ballots. People of superior intelligence and education, unless trained electrical engineers or experienced technicians, will not be capable of discovering electronic voter fraud.
UPDATE 17 Dec 2011
In today’s news, hackers threaten to disrupt vote counting machines In Iowa Caucus. To protect the vote, what do they do? Yes, the Republican caucus will forego electronic ballots for dependable PAPER ballots. Read more through the link below.
It is worth pointing out that electronic voting machines require more manpower. I suggest you spend time in the elections office to watch the process. You almost need one person per machine to explain its operation to voters. Paper ballots just aren’t difficult to understand.
Is your vote important? I know mine is and I want my vote to count.
Reference number 1 shows you how easily a virus can be introduced into an electronic voting machine. Reference number 2 reinforces the first.
