12 SMARTCARDS GO MISSING IN TENNESSEE; CONTROL ELECTRONIC VOTING MACHINES
Fri Nov 03 2006 10:09:31 ET

Political insiders have expressed alarm after 12 voter smartcards have gone missing from one Shelby County, TN early vote location!

The cards are used to activate electronic voting machines.

The location at the center of the controversy is Bishop Byrne High School on E. Shelby Drive in Memphis.

The polling place started out with 25 cards. By Wednesday, 11 were missing, says an eyewitness.

The location was given 5 more smartcards on Thursday.

And another card went missing!

They need to get rid of this electronic machine voting mess because they just aren't secure. Someone should call for the UN to come in and moniter our elections so it would embarrass the crap out of our leaders. And then maybe they would fix this mess!

There are about 4 companies nationally involved with this, many with ties to each other (supposed competitors) and many with ties to the White House and GOP politics. Ohio and New Mexico had inordinate and disparate amounts of votes "spoiled" (discarded) in predominantly Democratic strongholds. Anyone with a curious mind can do the research and spare the "get over it" canned reply. The amount of "spoiled" votes easily tripled the Bush victory in New Mexico (approximately 11k votes) and almost doubled the Bush victory in Ohio.

It's the game we play and the rules we're under. Perhaps had Diebold's CEO not uttered his famous line in 2004 (as Bush's Ohio field general) about giving the state to the president, it wouldn't be that big of a deal.

Was election fraud ever proven with these guys?, or is this just an assumption that they were frauding?

I saw that show too late last night or early this morning.

What I got from it is that the scare isn;t from Diebold being partisan itself, but that the machines and systems are so easy to manipulate. As the movie pointed out - a lot of jurisdictions controlled by Democrats love the machines and the REpublicans are uneasy about them.
Plus, it seems the Diebols people just lie - outright lie about the security of their systems in order to get the contracts with election districts.

History has shown that no voting method is fraud proof - but the ease with which to make massive, and virtually undectable fraud with these machines is scary.

Voting Machine Firms Confirm U.S. Probe

Voting machine firms confirm federal probe but deny ties to Venezuelan President Chavez


(AP) A U.S. manufacturer of touch-screen voting machines confirmed Sunday it was being investigated by the federal government for alleged ties to Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez but flatly denied any connection.

Sequoia Voting Systems Inc., based in Oakland, Calif., said the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, or CFIUS, was conducting the formal inquiry into it as well as its parent software company, the Smartmatic Corp., at the firms' request after news articles suggested improper ties.

The inquiry was focusing on last year's acquisition of Sequoia by Boca Raton, Fla.-based Smartmatic, which is owned by three Venezuelans, and whether Chavez's leftist government has any influence over their operations....

The probe, disclosed in the final days before the November congressional elections, comes amid growing concern about the reliability of electronic voting machines in what are expected to be many tight races nationwide.

A report released earlier this month by The Century Foundation think tank found problems with malfunctioning voting machines in 10 states it sampled. Activists, meanwhile, have filed lawsuits in at least nine states contending the new electronic voting machines are not secure....

Sequoia, which has been operating since the late 1800s and providing electronic voting equipment since the 1980s, currently provides electronic voting machines for 16 states as well as the District of Columbia.
