Your Vote Does Not Count

I believe most programmers can't help but fear that the outcome of elections for many years have been determined largely by incumbent politicians, bureaucrats and the handful of election software companies... all of them highly conservative.

While there is probably still enough restraint to allow a landslide vote the other way to prevail, my own sense is that most single-digit victories probably are fraudulent.

Democratic elections require transparent and verifiable election software at all levels. None is currently allowed in any binding election in this country today.

The reaction to the 2000 presidential election debacle was a masterful use of a crisis to set in motion a campaign to strip away most of the civil rights gains of the last 50 years.

Your vote doesn't count, and neither does mine, until this "electronic ballot-stuffing" is ended.
