More On the Dominion Voting Systems Controversy (Alan Levine, USA, 11/22/20 11:18 am)

AJ Cave (November 22nd) did great work with a great explanation. To JE's final question, what do the Dominion Voting System machines have to do with mail-in ballots: well, how do you think mailed-in ballots are counted? They are run through the machines too.

The allegations note that when counting millions of ballots with a difference of tens of thousands, the counting algorithm need be tweaked only a tiny fractional amount, say .0045--and there's your election.

JE comments: Is the "flip a switch, win an election" theory becoming mainstream?  In WAIS, this would appear to be the case.  To quiet the naysayers everywhere, nothing short of a thorough hand-counting of millions of paper ballots will do.  Possibly not even that.

Is attorney Sidney Powell the author of the Dominion conspiracy theory?  If so, it's a clever one.  Even the company's name sounds un-American:  Dominions suggest Canada, Australia, or New Zealand, not the United States.

  • We Have Seen No Evidence of Election Fraud...But It's Certainly Possible (Alan Levine, USA 11/23/20 3:51 AM)
    To clarify: I don't believe a massive fraud happened in the November 3rd election.  I haven't seen evidence. Just because something is owned by or has an affiliation with something else does not prove abuse. Those kinds of connections ought to sober the mind, but sloppy insinuations and possibilities do not equal actuality.

    At the same time, one has to be willfully obtuse or just so happy with the most recent election results that they gladly stick their head in the sand to believe that such abuse is not possible.


    After the 2016 election with the allegations and concerns of Russian tampering, much energy went into exploring the security of electronic voting systems. Every study concluded that there were massive vulnerabilities. It is not an accident that much of the scientific research cited by A. J. Cave is from years before this election. It was originally driven by concern that Trump benefited from fraud, not the other way around.


    But what did our state governments do about it? Precious little. After a little while the public forgot--until the next time. So goes democracy.


    For those who doubt that such systems can be hacked, these voting systems are relatively cheap and crappy compared to the gigantic safety systems of our biggest corporations, say of Google, banks, and hotels--not to mention the Federal government. Yet Google, banks, hotels and the Federal government have been hacked!


    If Google can't protect itself, do you think state politicians who know little about anything and hardly ever face accountability for anything have the incentive and attention span to make sure voting systems are secure? They let state-level civil servants take care of it. Ah, now I feel that my sacred vote is secure. Do you?


    Again, I have seen no evidence of massive fraud in this election, but you have to be an ostrich to not realize the vulnerabilities of the system.


    JE comments:  Yes, it's possible.  At least since the 2000 debacle, the US goes through a quadrennial exercise of how to make elections air-tight.  And then, as Alan Levine points out, we forget about it until the next contest.  One can only conclude that our antediluvian methods are a political, not technological, problem.


    Let's tap into the WAIS brain trust:  what are the voting "best practices" in other nations?
