Many years ago there was a big debate about the efficacy and security of voting machines. At the time there was only a couple of companies making voting machines and all software, on the voting machines, was proprietary. One of the results of that debate is that a bunch of programmers got together to create software that was free, better, and source available.

Anyway, I came across: https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2019/09/defcon-2019-hacking-village/

The was a test of hackers to see if they could hack the voting machines currently in use. They could. Google "hack voting machine" for a lot of returns. One test was by high school kids and they were able to hack a machine in something like 30 seconds! (if I remember correctly).

Anyway, I always thought the debate was legit and voting machines are completely unsecure, expensive, break down often, etc.

Wasn't it Diebold who first said "We are committed to delivering the voting results to President Bush" way back in 2003?

Double digit exit poll discrepancies are also a sign of vote rigging but who’s looking...
Closing polling stations and limiting access to remaining ballot boxes has been widespread and reported on. Strange polling apps such as the one in Iowa, and the statistically impossible errors against one candidate are another problem. So long as there’s no objection of this criminality I expect voting to be little more than a charade, or entertainment in the future.

I wonder, JGW, if This thread you started will lead to a years long discussion as the Russian hoax hysteria did on this site?

Define Russian hoax hysteria.
You keep packing that in like a Tootsie Roll in a kid's lunch, so maybe we all need to understand what your position is on the Russians to begin with.

Well clearly that's Biden's doing, he closed all those polling places, not the Party of Trump.

That the Russian government was responsible for putting Trump in the Whitehouse.

There used to be a years long thread here about it. Now it’s no longer a thing here for some reason. I expect it will be again on the general.

Sorta like Tulsi Gabbard, I suppose. First she’s a Russian asset, now she’s not.

But golly it sure was fun to conjecture on.
