Dems Election Day Voter Fraud Shenanigans Continues, Deepens
- Virginia Voter Fraud. Richmond Times-Dispatch
- E - VOTING FRAUD . CIO/Insight:
David Dill is a computer science professor at Stanford University and the founder of Verified Voting, a non-profit organization that encourages voter-verified paper ballots rather than paperless systems. Dill spoke with Online Editor Debra D'Agostino about vote flipping, poll security and lessons learned from yesterday's election. What follows is an edited transcript of his remarks.
CIO Insight: While there were widespread reports of problems with voting machines, most of them were said to be caused by human error. Does this mean the machines are safer than you thought they were?
Dill: It was inevitable that things would go wrong. We have a lot of new equipment in this election that people aren't familiar with. There have been a lot of issues just because workers didn't know how to operate the machines. The poll workers try to get the machines up and running and discover they can't, so the voters begin to line up. You call the state office, but the lines are busy because everyone is having the same problem. The end result is that voters get turned away.
There were also complaints of vote flipping across the nation during yesterday's election. The problem is usually blamed on screen calibration errors, but I don't understand how these machines can go out of calibration so easily. And without an investigation into the problem, there's no way to tell.
