ProfessorOhki: Znuh: Meanwhile, rigged machine?http://tv.msnbc.com/2012/11/06/machine-turns-vote-for-obama-into-one- f or-romney/Never seen a miscalibrated CRT touchscreen before? You know, where the cursor is offset from the touchpoint by a constant distance? I mean, it's certainly possible that it's legitimate manipulation, but the fact that he didn't poke Stein to see if it selected Obama, etc. I've got a hard time putting any stock in it.Besides, if you could mess with the machine on that level, why SHOW the voter you're tampering with their vote?

PsyLord: Why isn't this shiat secure yet? I mean we have ATM's and lottery machines that seem to be pretty damn secure.
serial_crusher: Dinki: You implant a microprocessor or some other electronic device into the voting machine, and that lets you control the voting and turn cheating on and off.Stopped reading right there.Pretty much. This isn't a "voting machines are easily hackable" thing. This is a physical access issue. Keep shiat locked up properly and it's not a problem.
