Hack the vote: Russian election chief rips US elections, voting machines
"American voting machines have not been designed to provide any documentary evidence of citizen participation in the electoral process,” the Russian observer noted. “Moreover, operators [of the machinery] are technically capable of adding or dropping votes in favor of one candidate or another, leaving behind no evidence of violations''
''Voting machines used by as many as a quarter of American voters heading to the polls in 2012 can be hacked with just $10.50 in parts and an eighth grade science education, according to computer science and security experts at the Vulnerability Assessment Team at Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois,” reported Salon.
"It is generally believed that the American people will elect their president on November6. In fact, the president – an individual bestowed with enormous powers – will be elected by the so-called Electoral College.
The president will be elected by the 280 electors, not by all American citizens," the head of Russia's Central Election Commission noted.
According to US law, international observers from the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) are only granted access to polling stations in a handful of US states, including in Missouri, South Dakota, North Dakota, New Mexico, and the District of Columbia.
In the other states, US Governors have the final say over the question of allowing international observers to monitor the election process.
According to Churov, however, the dark side of the American election process is that “OSCE monitors have been barred from entering polling stations even in the states where they may do so under US law.”
This lack of transparency opens the door to numerous possibilities for corruption and manipulation of the system, he added.

what surprises me the most, is that anyone in America still believes our system is running correctly and is still usable.
