Question Were The Votes Manipulated?

I found this blog and they are talking about hackers manipulating the vote. Do you think this is possible? What safeguards are in place to protect our voting rights? This is a person that had done investigative reporting for 30 years.

If you're going to use electronic voting machines, then, yes, the vote will be fixed.
The stakes are too high for the monied interests to just leave the vote to the people when it is so easy to game the system.

in N. Florida - Tallahassee, we mark paper ballots first then run them through the scanner ourselves - then they give us the "I VOTED" sticker.

if touch screens do not have a paper trail - then for sure they are subject to manipulation quite a bit easier than having a hard copy ...


there does seem to be many ways to manipulate the returns -

when Connie Mac ran for the Senate 1989 the exit pols showed a definite choice for Buddy Mackay however after delays two S Florida counties (Cuban) showed a disproportionate advantage for Mac who just barley won the election with only 50% of the vote - everyone knew the vote was rigged by the Cuban community but it was not proven.
