This isn’t pleasant. I’m not all the way through, but I can safely say that hanging chads present less of a risk of bad election results than what we’re doing in most states today.
There is not one aspect to this that suggests we can count on the results of this election. The data is so vulnerable and easy to manipulate that the only reason Hillary (probably) didn’t do it was because every Democrat thought she was a shoo-in.
They got caught flat-footed in 2016, and they would not let it happen in 2020. And it did not. This thing was stolen not just by mail fraud but through software hacks or system manipulation. And until this is fixed, we can’t hold an election using this equipment and software and trust that the results are accurate, and that includes New Hampshire.
In our case, we have handwritten ballots machine counted, but you can physically verify the results. But the scope of that is huge. Imagine counting an entire Congressional district or a statewide race like Governor or US Senate. A tiny state is still a huge deal. And if you had the access or the connections, or the resources – watch the video – it’s not that hard to steal an election.
Even in New Hampshire, as long as it’s big enough to scare anyone away from any sort or recount. Kelly Ayotte’s loss to Maggie Hassan comes to mind. It was about 1000 votes give or take.
Watch the video.
It’s almost an hour, but this is fascinating and scary stuff. (I have a local copy available as back up.)
