Devastating Hack Proven
The hack on an Optical Scan Diebold voting machine requires a moderate level of inside access. It is, however, accomplished without being given any password and with the same level of access given thousands of poll workers across the USA. It is a particularly dangerous exploit, because it changes votes in a one-step process that
will not be detected in any normal canvassing procedure.

5. Republican Senator Chuck Hagel used to be chairman of ES&S. He became Senator based on votes counted by ES&S machines.

6. Republican Senator Chuck Hagel, long-connected with the Bush family, was recently caught lying about his ownership of ES&S by the Senate Ethics Committee.

7. Senator Chuck Hagel was on a short list of George W. Bush's vice-presidential candidates.

8. ES&S is the largest voting machine manufacturer in the U.S. and counts almost 60% of all U.S. votes.

15. None of the international election observers were allowed in the polls in Ohio.

Information about the dangers of electronic voting!

Electronic voting machines without paper trails to audit votes is more than wrong it should be criminal. Most if not all electronic voting machines have no paper printout. It should concern you because numbers in megabits can be easily and stealthily changed in seconds. That amount of change is no comparison to the more difficult human attempt of altering paper ballots. When you go to the store you can always expect to get a paper printout from electronic cash registers or paper receipts from ATM machines. There is nothing hard about doing this.
There is something very sinister about the way the electronic voting machines were allowed without a printout. Verify the Vote! Election Reform Information Project

How does voting count in America when incumbents always win because of voting districts drawn in their favor?

The U.S. Presidential Election of 2000 was the most controversial Presidential General Election in America's history.

George W. Bush lost the popular vote but won the electoral vote by the narrowest margin ever!

It was the closest election in US history that was decided by a few hundred votes in Florida after Florida purged felon voters from a list provided by ChoicePoint.

GORE 266 electoral votes from 21 states with 50,996,116 popular votes
BUSH 271 electoral votes from 30 states with 50,456,169 popular votes

The United States Supreme Court made the final decision in Bush v. Gore. The Court voted 7-2 to end the recount on the grounds that differing standards in different counties constituted an equal protection violation, and 5-4 that no new recount with uniform standards could be conducted.

Since an election for the President of the United States is not done by popular vote, it is a throw away vote if you vote for a Presidential candidate that does not have enough total nationwide electoral votes to possibly win!

One method of dealing with bad laws is known as jury nullification. So why do judges and lawyers not like the idea? During jury questions they will ask you about it and eliminate you from jury duty if you believe in the American right to jury nullification.
