Tim Canova: Democracies everywhere have banned electronic voting machines because they’re inherently vulnerable to hacking. Except in US, here it’s Black Box voting, cannot inspect the software, it’s “proprietary.”

We need paper ballots counted by hand in public for transparency & Integrity.

I don’t know what’s more important than exposing false flags, re-nationalizing our currency, and ensuring integrity in our elections. This is a big step and as big of a conspiracy as any in our current society. Hope more people will tackle the problem of exposing this and pushing for solutions.

Diebold Election Systems and UTC (2002-2009)[edit]

See also: Premier Election Solutions

In 2002, Diebold entered the United States elections industry through the acquisition of Global Election Systems, a producer of touch-screen voting technology based in McKinney, Texas. Branded Diebold Election Systems (DES), the acquisition was their smallest business segment,[36] and in late 2002, 3.7 million voters in Georgia used DES touch-screen stations.[31] DES was soon the subject of controversy amid allegations surrounding the security and reliability of some of its products,[37] as well as the political fundraising activities of Diebold’s then-CEO Walden O’Dell in 2003. Critics argued O’Dell had a political conflict of interest which could compromise the security of Diebold’s ballots,[35] which O’Dell denied.[38] Shortly afterwards, Diebold forbade its top executives from making political donations.[39] Citing personal reasons,[40] O’Dell resigned in December 2005[41] after several consecutive quarters of poor performance,[40] with his role taken by Tom Swidarski.[42] In August 2007, DES rebranded itself as Premier Election Solutions,[43][44][36] and two years later the division was sold to a competitor, Election Systems & Software.[45]

Election Systems & Software

Election Systems & Software (ES&S) is an Omaha, Nebraska-based company that manufactures and sells voting machine equipment and services. [1] The company’s offerings include vote tabulators, direct-recording electronic (DRE) machines, voter registration and election management systems, ballot-marking devices, electronic poll books, Ballot on Demand printing services, and absentee voting-by-mail services.

Reported problems during the 2010 election[edit]

On April 14, 2010, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported that “About 10 percent of Cuyahoga County’s voting machines … [had] failed a pre-election test.”[33] After 20 months of investigating the DS200 Precinct Count Optical Scanner in the EAC-certified Unity 3.2.0.0 voting system, on December 22, 2011, the Election Assistance Commission recommended decertification of the ES&S voting machine if it cannot be fixed. From the findings:[34]

“The DS200 accepts a voted ballot but does not record the ballot on its internal counter. In addition the marks of the second ballot are not recorded.”

“When a 17” ballot was inserted at an angle, the DS200 did not consistently count the mark properly. The mark registered either as a different selection than intended or did not register at all.”

The system randomly freezes and does not record the freeze in its log files. There are other events not logged, such as touch screen calibration.
