Stunning testimony: Voting machines can
be hacked without a trace of evidence

Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 9/12/2017 10:37:06 PM

The country’s voting machines are susceptible to hacking, which could be done in a way so that it leaves no fingerprints, making it impossible to know whether the outcome was changed, computer experts told President Trump’s voter integrity commission Tuesday. The testimony marked a departure for the commission, which was formed to look into fraud and barriers to voting, but which heard that a potentially greater threat to confidence in American elections is the chance for enemy actors to meddle. “There’s no perfect security; there’s only degrees of insecurity,” said Ronald Rivest, a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

I do not trust these electronic voting machines. The electronic galley is ok but there needs to be paper vote validation for auditing purposes.

If it ain´t connected to the internet, it can´t be hacked unless you allow someone with a computer to come into the polling place and connect cables to your voting machine.

I believe that I have read that voting machines are not internet connected during voting.

Sorry, I don´t believe these "experts". Just because there could be a way that a machine could be compromised doesn´t mean that it would be easy to do or possible to do on a broad scale.

For example, the comment that "Maybe the Wi-Fi was turned on" would require that a machine would have to be configured incorrectly, that someone could find THAT machine out of thousands in the country, that such wifi access could be used to make vote count changes, and make changes that wouldn´t be a dead giveaway like adding 3000 votes to a candidate in a precinct that only has 1500 people.

This is like saying that a careless banker "might" leave the door of the bank unlocked. A thief would need to know that bank was unlocked. Then someone would also need to leave the vault unlocked as well. Sure, it "could" happen. And I could win Powerball too.

Tech experts love to flap their gums and show off. Then they can make a case to sell better security to a worried public. How hard is it to create a voting machine with NO Wi-Fi. To program it at setup, a hardwired ethernet connection would be required and it would be pretty difficult to "accidently" leave that connected while the machine was counting votes on election day. Only a moron would do it. Or simply make it IMPOSSIBLE for the network function to be on when the machine is in operation counting votes. Electronically shut off power to any ethernet connection when tallying votes.

Perhaps true, but unless done very cleverly, the voting pattern should make the fraud obvious.

Having been an election commissioner for over 13 years I feel compelled to comment.
My state has 75 Counties. Each County selects ballot position by lot. With 7 Presidential candidates this past election that means there could be X number( please help with the parmutations & comutations) of different sequences of candidates that would have to be hacked on an electronic voting machine that is not connected to the internet. The results are printed out on paper at each of my 20 polling sites. This data is transferred to a computer that has never been connected to the internet, the data is coallated and then transmitted to the State (ah the weak link). When they publish that data on the internet we compare it to the paper trail we have. Any discrepancy would be immediately discovered

It is very apparent now the New Hampshire vote was stolen for Hillary by Democrats using fraudulent means. If investigated it will be revealed that most of the fraudulent voters were various public service employees from Massachusetts.

This isn´t a surprise. Just make the software so that it flips a certain percentage of votes as they are entered. The actual vote count would match the number of people that voted. If the voting machine is connected to the internet, It could download good software and replace the hacked software afterward and vice versa. Maybe it could be done in such a way that the voting machine wouldn´t even need to be rebooted. It would be like any software that is expected to be up and running 24x7x365.

We all here know that the real issue with election validity isn´t hacking, Russian or otherwise, but the untold number of people voting illegally or in multiple locations. And we also know which party fights against any reasonable laws (voter ID) aimed to curtail those shenanigans.

In my county (I´m an election judge) we use optical scan machines almost exclusively; paper ballots with results recorded on to a chip in the machine. After every election our county clerk takes at least one set of ballots and does a match up with the machine to make sure it is operating properly. All voted ballots are in sealed bags stored for a certain length of time in case of a recount. The only way to cheat requires shenanigans by the humans involved. No shenanigans at my polling place

#8 and #18:

Same here in Virginia. Neither the pollbook computers, where we check in the voters and record them having voted, nor the electronic ballot scanning machines are connected to the internet.

We do not use any electronic touch-screen voting machines. Our entire process has a paper trail that can be recounted/audited.

I´m not sure what type of machines the article references, but not the case here.

FTA: ´Maybe the Wi-Fi was turned on when it shouldn’t have been.’

Why would voting machines have WiFi? Doesn´t seem likely. If they did and it was off, how would you connect to it to turn it on?

Some new cars have internet capability, but cars and smart phones communicate with Bluetooth.

The whole premise is questionable. If hacked machines can´t be detected, how can we tell if it´s possible?

Nothing can be tampered with without leaving a trace. If something is changed, sooner or later, someone is going to notice. It´s like stealing furniture. Maybe an item or two goes missing and is not noticed at first, then a room full is gone, and someone is compelled to the conclusion that someone is stealing the furniture.

We need to go back to the punch cards. Simple, auditable, and with completely known error rates. The ballots can be re-run to increase the accuracy (run them through again to get -6dB less noise, thrice (4 total counts) for -12dB noise, 8 total for -18dB, limited by the durability of the cards).

But Democrats are too *stupid* to operate them. They´re too dumb to poke a hole in paper. That was the excuse in Florida 2000, and it´s why the whole country has these iffy machines that nobody can be certain about. Idiot Democrats will be the end of this nation.

RE #23: "Morticia, you spoke Decibels!"

More seriously, any all-electronic system sans a paper trail has the potential of being hacked without a trace. Electrons are ephemeral by nature. Fortunately, most voting machine manufacturers offer a paper trail option - at additional cost. As an election judge, I know that is the case with the machines in my precinct. Local election commissioners need to be convinced to spend the extra money.

For the geeks among us: cyclic redundancy check (CRC) would also "harden" the count, as opposed to simple checksums as used in my area.

But without a National ID, that only addresses the tip of the iceberg.

Even with our best efforts, Democrats in particular will find a way to cheat. Just check the Chicago river after any election.

When all else fails: purple dye. /s

If you want to read up on this, may I suggest ´blackboxvoting.org´.

IF....IF....IF what the ´blackboxvoting´ people are saying is correct, the computer system, at least the ones they are discussing, were DESIGNED to be MANIPULATED.

I agree with them that if the vote count allows DECIMALS.... not just Integer numbers, that is an ´indicator´ that things are not on the up-and-up.

My thought is that the system should be VISIBLE, with HARD COPIES, and COMPLETELY OPEN TO OBSERVATION BY ALL, AT ALL TIMES.

It´s been widely known, for years, in IT that electronic voting machines are absolutely (and demonstrated) insecure. Anyone with in the chain of custody of the machines can load the the election hack, which can hide itself before and remove all traces of itself after the election.

Elections must be done with voter marked paper ballots. Machine readable, sure - but hand-marked. But the entire election process needs to be secured. There are ways to ensure the security of the process without violating the sanctity of the voting booth. And why are the votes counted behind closed doors, removed from the public? Shouldn´t be that way. (And yes, I have spent some time thinking about this topic.)

In light of the potential government shutdown looming over budget negotiations and quietly being used to pressure Republicans into providing a legislative solution for Dreamers, its worth examining what Democrats had to say on the subject in the run-up to the last government shutdown in 2013.Democrats, then in control of the White House and the Senate, castigated Republicans in harsh and personal terms in response to their refusing to approve a budget deal that did not defund Obamacare. Their criticisms centered around a rejection of the shutdown as a negotiating tool; they argued that it is an abdication of duty

While the headline of the report, "The Voters Abandoning Donald Trump," attempts to present the information in as dark a light as possible, the third paragraph acknowledges this Narrative-defying fact: Trump "has established a modest but durable beachhead among African American and Hispanic men, even while confronting overwhelming opposition from women in those demographic groups": In every age group, and at every level of education, about twice as many African American men as women gave Trump positive marks.

An ongoing mantra of the left is that everyone is a victim, with a singular carve-out for white men. A large group of the female population has embraced this chant. While there may be a number of grievances put forth by this movement, there also comes a theme that is particularly dangerous: the feminist attack on masculinity. This is derived not only from feminists; it comes from the left in general. There has emerged a war on masculinity. Why? Because masculine men are harder to control under tyrannical socialism. The modern beta male, on the other hand, craves socialism. This

President Trump’s latest obloquy—calling a number of countries “s**tholes” and asking why we are expected to accept their immigrants—is offensive for all the reasons you’ve probably heard: it’s insulting, racially divisive, callous, and so on. The United States has welcomed immigrants from various “s**thole” countries for much of its history. Those schleppers worked, sweated, and saved, started businesses, paid taxes, and asked God to bless America.If only that was all there was to it. As is so often case in this president’s administration, noxious wording is distracting from a serious public-policy debate. The truth is that an “hourglass,” low-mobility, big-government

This Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the NAACP wants man-made global warming to be seen as a civil rights issue, arguing King’s vision of a society free of racial injustice can’t be achieved without addressing warming. “We see climate change as a civil rights issue,” Jacqueline Patterson, head of the NAACP’s environmental and climate justice program, said in an online radio spot for the Yale Center for Environmental Connection. Environmental activists have been increasingly framing global warming as a matter of “environmental justice,” since “minority and low-income populations are disproportionately affected by global warming,” Patterson told Yale’s online radio Climate

Ever since Donald Trump entered the political arena, his intelligence has been viciously attacked and his supporters have been labeled as moronic deplorables. In a recent Trump tweet, the president responded to the most recent attack by saying he is a stable genius. The mainstream media never bothered checking evidence of Obama´s intelligence before one historian declared him "the smartest man with the highest IQ ever to be elected to the presidency", even though his academic records were sealed. What these attacks do prove is who the real brains are and who are the dummies: Alan Dershowitz may be for real

A crazed, bug-eyed Cory Booker, junior senator from New Jersey, blasted Department of Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Nielsen during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday on immigration. Booker became so unhinged in his staged outrage that he repeatedly threatened Nielsen, with clenched fists pointed in her direction. Equal to Booker´s overt violation of Nielsen´s right to be treated without hostility and intimidation was the deranged content of his tirade. Nielsen had stated earlier she did not hear the president say the "s-hole" word at last week´s White House meeting on DACA. Booker went ballistic and accused Nielsen of covering up

Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) on Monday announced she plans to boycott President Trump´s State of the Union address to Congress at the end of the month, joining a handful of other Democratic lawmakers who are skipping the annual event. "I´m here on Martin Luther King Jr. Day to say I will not be going to the State of the Union," Jayapal said in a video posted on social media. "I think it is absolutely unacceptable to see the racism and the hatred coming out the White House in a way in which this president is fueling the flames of divisiveness across

From his perch in the Ohio governor’s mansion, Republican John Kasich is keeping a keen eye on President Trump’s every move and showing a willingness — some say eagerness — to hurl rotten tomatoes toward the leader of his party when he gets upset with the act.He has become a go-to anti-Trump source for the media and often doesn’t even wait for the press to call. Instead, he leaps in to pile on after presidential missteps.While insisting he wants Mr. Trump to succeed, Mr. Kasich has pointedly refused to rule out mounting a primary challenge against the president in 2020.

TRENTON, N.J. — Days before his inauguration as New Jersey’s 56th governor, Phil Murphy had Hollywood on his mind. The 60-year old Democrat had just read a headline about reshoots on “All the Money in the World,” which had been done in a hurry to remove disgraced actor Kevin Spacey from the movie. (Snip) Murphy is ready to end his obscurity. On Tuesday, when he is sworn in, New Jersey will become one of just eight states where Democrats run every branch of government. If Murphy has his way, New Jersey will become a proving ground for every liberal policy

Three-quarters of the members of a federally chartered board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year. The resignation of nine out of 12 National Park System Advisory Board members leaves the federal government without a functioning body to designate national historic or natural landmarks. It also underscores the extent to which federal advisory bodies have become marginalized under the Trump administration. In May 2017, Zinke suspended all outside committees while his staff reviewed their composition and work. In a
