First Rule of Stealing: Not when they're looking.
Thanks to mounting attention on the proven abuse-ability of secret corporate cyber voting systems, enough light was shone on the taboo subject this 2012 election to cause the universal criminal's response of knocking it off when about to get caught.
Late software patches were installed on vote tabulators in 39 Ohio counties, declared "experimental" to avoid testing and certification, an enormously suspicious move a month before the election. Bob Fitrakis of The Free Press filed an e-voting lawsuit election to stop their use but after election day deliberations the court denied the motion, but left the door open to further action after the election. It is exactly this kind of examination and other integrity checks that the GOP-supporting e-vote corporations fear.
It is more than worth losing an planned election theft to avoid detection and preserve the secret cheating scheme for future use. Do not be fooled by this apparent validation of election integrity.
The public vote cannot be counted in secret by black boxes controlled by corporations.
We've seen examples of the wrong choice lighting up on a voting machine. Ask yourself, what happens when the correct choice lights up? No public voter, no government agency knows.
No overthrow of the duopoly, no democratic reforms are possible until we fix this.
Public count of the Public's vote.
