This issue should be non-partisan. Americans should be concerned about the accuracy of the vote regardless of their party affiliation. Unfortunately, the film, perhaps for reasons of recent history, seems to portray Democrats as the victims of Republicans' machinations. In particular, the film suggests strongly that President George W. Bush's two elections were the result of voter[...], not of actual votes, first in Florida and then in New Mexico and Ohio. I suspect that today's highly polarized zeitgeist might lead those who lean right to dismiss the film while those who lean left to endorse it uncritically. If I'm right, then it's a shame since the issue really is vital to the country.
Bev Harris, from the film's depiction, is a concerned citizen who stumbled across a mistake when she was doing an Internet search. Concerned about Diebold, which makes, programs, and sells electronic voting machines, she happened to find an ftp site that the company had neglected to remove from the Web. She downloaded over dozens of hours all sorts of files, including code to earlier versions of the voting programs.Read more ›
It has since been proven, as if there were ever really any question, that electronic voting is impossible to protect from hackers, especially those who have the most access to the machines: voting officials and voting machine vendors and their employees. Add to this the eerie and vast presence of the CIA, NSA, FBI and many other covert agencies behind the scenes in the counting of our vote, which can be easily documented beyond a "shadow" of a doubt, and you have a full blown catastrophe. Such is what many of us believe has happened. We currently have no way of knowing what has occured in the casting and counting of electronic votes. I made my views public several years ago that I also believed optical scan machines, which have been counting our votes since the early 1980s, are just as impossible to secure, and as easy to rig. Unbelievably easy. In fact, they seemed designed to rig.Read more ›
Ultimately I was able to confirm much about how the Florida elections were manipulated. Bev Harris was a public figure showing what so many others were discovering on their own. In the end I wrote a novel called Purple State full of stories about what I witnessed. It was made more credible by the work that Bev has done with her organization Black Box Voting. Her efforts and this movie are invaluable to the integrity of our democracy.
