That was very interesting documentary. Thanks!
I do believe what they said was mostly true.
Also what was interesting to see this finnish expert, Harri Hursti...he used to be sort of famous here, he became known to finns when he competed at tv show Double or Nothing...at very young age. His expertise in the show was some programming language which he had used to compile a program for some British company. He lived with his parents not so far from where I did although I believe he was couple years older and went to different school. There used to be interviews and comments from him in every other "Mikrobitti"-magazine here during 80's...
Always wondered what happened to him...Now I read some info about him at web...some IT businesses sold...millionaire etc.
Currently he's trying to convince Americans that their voting system is unreliable...it is.
-Long cues in poor areas
-Republicans trying to...what was the word...disenfranchise some Democrat voters
-Statisticians say Al Gore lost 260 000 votes in Florida due cheating.
-Statistically electronic voting has tendency to add more Republican votes...which is explained by:
-Hursti hack. Hursti proved you can hack memory card easily and affect voting from one machine...I believe that -16 000 votes for Democratic candidate was exactly because of this. And it certainly wasn't the only case.
-But here's the latest...biggest vendor 60% of the machines... I read an Finnish article where Hursti tells that Any voter can completely dictate outcome of the presidential elections not even having to connect physically into the voting machine!
(or simply using hacked memory card or using voting machines serial port in less than minute)
...One only needs a palm device with a program in it(virus), use magnet to activate infrared port. Upload virus. Virus will move to mainframe and display any kind of figures you want. After that virus will destroy itself. Nobody will never know. You can decide the president(too) by yourself, great isn't it?
-Also note that even if the results would not be hacked at all before mainframe, the vendors of the machines have password to mainframe where any admin can change the results manually.
-Belgium, Britain and USA had these machines. Belgium replaced them while back.
It appears that polls are more reliable than actual voting, huh. Unfortunately with these presidential elections they can always blame "bradley effect". Scary.
