The only way for old Hillary to win is to cheat, steal and add to the body count...
Or run against Donald Trump.
She couldn't have asked for an easier opponent.
Right....and she's still having a bloody hard time beating him.....
Yeah, I guess a 97 to 3% likely margin of victory is a "bloody hard time."
This gets more ridiculous by the post.

That trick don't work with me bud.
I was going to refer you to Kansas Attorney's Generals Office but since you have no credentials, they won't talk to you.
So you can use Google like everyone else.
I could give a lot more, but I'll not compromise on going criminal investigations.
In Texas, you’ll vote on one of these systems.
The State of Texas has selected and certified voting systems from three different vendors: Election Systems & Software (ES&S), Hart InterCivic, and Premier Election Solutions (formerly Diebold, Inc.). Regardless of the system you’re using, know this: When voting in the Lone Star State, you count. Texas makes sure. Following are the voting systems certified for use in Texas. (You can click on the name of each voting system to go to the manufacturer’s product description page.)

AccuVote®-OS, an optical scan voting system
From Election Systems & Software:

Board of Directors and Ownership
In July 2011, Hart received what Hart described as "a strategic investment" from H.I.G. Capital, in a transaction that Hart's advisors called an "acquisition."
As of October 2012, the Board has five members: Gregg Burt, Chairman; Phillip Braithwaite, Chief Executive Officer; Neil Tuch, Managing Director, H.I.G. Capital; Jeff Bohl, Principal, H.I.G. Capital; and Amanda Kalin, Associate, H.I.G. Capital. HIG controls 3 out of 5 board seats.
Two of the H.I.G. Directors that work for H.I.G., Neil Tuch and Jeff Bohl, have previously made contributions to presidential campaigns – Neil Tuch contributed to both the Obama and Romney campaigns prior to H.I.G.’s investment in Hart InterCivic, and Jeff Bohl contributed to the Romney campaign in 2011. As of October 2012, H.I.G. is the 11th largest of all the contributors to the Romney effort.
H.I.G. counts Solamere Capital as a minor investor in one of its funds. Solamere Capital is an investment firm founded by Mitt Romney's, son, Tagg Romney, and Spencer Zwick, Mitt Romney's campaign finance chair and in which Mitt Romney's brother, Scott, and Mitt Romney's wife, Ann, and Mitt Romney himself has invested, and which is run by Tagg Romney. Solamere is not invested in the specific H.I.G. fund that has an investment in Hart InterCivic.
Premier Election Solutions, Inc. is currently run by David Byrd.
According to a company statement [PDF] just released, Diebold Elections Systems, Inc. will become Premier Election Solutions as of today. The company president, David Byrd, who has overseen the disastrous election unit for some time, will stay on as President to go down with the ship, apparently.
Applying full lipstick to the pig, the company statement declares, “The change to Premier signals a new beginning for the company.” And President Byrd picks up where he left off, furiously polishing his turd, with the claim that “This is both a fresh identity for our company and a unique opportunity for us to concentrate our focus solely on proving best-in-class elections solutions for current and potential customers.”
