National Election Integrity

My references are US based but other countries may have similar election integrity challenges.



Only oversight by the public can possibly prevent our electoral system from being manipulated (or owned) by insiders (like election officials and/or private election vendors) or outsiders (like foreign nations and/or hackers).

Amazingly, Maryland says they had no clue about the Russian ownership of the private server company which hosts the state's electoral systems --- including voter registration, election management (ballot programming and tabulation), election night results reporting and more. They were notified by the Feds just last Friday

WHAT???? Russian OWNERSHIP of the electronic election system?? REALLY?



At a hastily called news conference, Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller and House Speaker Michael Busch said the FBIinformed them and Gov. Larry Hogan that without the state’s knowledge, a Russian investor had bought the software vendor in 2015.



ByteGrid LLC owns the servers that hold the data for voter registration, candidacy, election management, and election night results, state elections officials said. An ownership stake in the company was purchased by AltPoint Capital Partners, whose largest investor is a Russian oligarch named Vladimir Potanin, the election officials said

Brad Friedman is an investigative journalist and writer and has been a fierce proponent of PUBLIC oversight of elections. The Privatization of elections (proprietary equipment and software) is eroding the integrity of and confidence in our US Election system.
I find him the ‘canary in the mine’ on this issue and many green issues as well, his radio show can be found at his informative and factual website.

Damn, why don't the Russians just buy our country? Everything is for sale here, opinions, politicians, values, businessmen... sell it and have Trump tell people everything is good and legit, so people can believe him, and we can move on.

Who wants some Chernobly?

Putin was one of them, and he’s still there with the latest POTUS in his back pocket

2015, which President was in power? Trump must be truly powerful if he was the big man back then.

Voting Issues: Some Trump Voters Reporting Ballots Switching To Clinton


is that why that was happening?

Well, evidently Maryland was not hacked by Russians supporting Trump. Maybe Russia was supporting Hillary there, she got about sixty percent of the votes there.

Changing the subject is all you've got.


It’s not exactly a complicated tactic — any grade-schooler can master the “yeah-well-you-suck-too-so-there” defense.

I hate to say this - but that is not the point. The point is that the integrity of elections are in doubt - between privatization and hacking .... well - what could possibly go wrong?

I do not see anything necessarily wrong with this, unless it can be found that some shenanigans took place with an election.

As the article mentions, it is best to inform the public and let them know the facts, so the people can decide if they want their election officials to find a different source to provide those services.

I knew some people who worked counting votes years back. They would change the vote tally so their candidate woulddo better and possibly win in their precinct.

I guess that was common all over, and the people choosing the people who were doing this sometimes knew about people doing that.

Wait, you mean after Russia embraced capitalism and the USA celebrated that fact with them, they invested in companies all over the world, in very diverse sectors? HOLY GOD! Who the hell do they think they are, Westerners!?!?

Seriously dude, the mental gymnastics required to turn everything under the sun into a conspiracy of Russians has got to be exhausting. You're seeing a product of globalism, nothing more, nothing less. Russians, same as Americans, Germans, Canadian, hell even Mexicans like Slim Cortez and his billions, invest in a wide variety of industries and services. Unless you're pushing for an American law which outlaws all foreign investment (which hell, I'm game for that one, actually... why should the world profit off of us?) the concerns here seem far too convenient and targeted.
