Not to mention but the software developers could be getting paid off in order to "add a few votes here, and take some from here". I find this rather ridiculous, there has to be a voting system that can be managed by the people as a whole. Wouldn't ya think?

Arg.. I hate this whole line here. Voting is far too important for electronic gadgets and gizmos. At least as the sole decider. Until or unless they incorporate hard copy (read: PAPER) records that record each and every vote as it happens for verification later in a serious challenge....the whole thing is a joke.
If man can code it, a kid can hack it. It's as reliable a rule as the sun rising right on time, every morning.
In Oct 2000 I wrote a prototype for present Congressman Tom Finny.. that would flip the vote 51 49 to whoever you wanted... and they would never see it. You would have to view the source code or count... or you wouldn't see it. It's a simple program, 100 lines tops.
