All Diebold voting machines can delete votes without record
This, my friends, means that no election certified using Diebold machines is actually, you know, valid:
Even the audit log system on current versions of Premier Election Solutions’ (formerly Diebold’s) electronic voting and tabulating systems — used in some 34 states across the nation — fail to record the wholesale deletion of ballots. Even when ballots are deleted on the same day as an election.
An election system’s audit logs are meant to record all activity during the system’s actual counting of ballots, so that later examiners may determine, with certainty, whether any fraudulent or mistaken activity had occurred during the count. Diebold’s software fails to do that, as has recently been discovered by Election Integrity advocates in Humboldt County, CA, and then confirmed by the CA Secretary of State. The flaws, built into the system for more than a decade, are in serious violation of federal voting system certification standards.</em>
Only incredibly stupid- or incredibly corrupt- people would allow a private company to tell us who won an election. You take your pick as to what we’re dealing with here. My money is on corrupt.
