Editor’s NoteCan you just imagine a future where, because they forced all these states to accept electronic voting machines, they now say, “No, these aren’t safe enough from hackers! We must require biometric scans in order to secure your vote”?

Did you know that for just $26 and an 8th-grade education you can hack a voting machine? This has actually been common knowledge for years, since a study at the Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois developed a hack to manipulate voting machines just before the 2012 elections.

The researchers who developed the hack were actually able to hijack a Diebold Accuvote TS electronic voting machine, one of the most popular voting systems at the time.

Two of the lead researchers in the study were able to demonstrate a number of different ways that voting machines could be hacked. They used a $1.29 microprocessor and a circuit board that costs about $8, along with a $15 remote control.

They demonstrated that the cheap hack worked from over a half-mile away.

“When the voter hits the ‘vote now’ button to register his votes, we can blank the screen and then go back and vote differently and the voter will be unaware that this has happened. Spend an extra four bucks and get a better lock, you don’t have to have state-of-the-art security, but you can do some things where it takes at least a little bit of skill to get in,” Johnson said.

As far as how easy the hack is, Johnson told Popsci that “I’ve been to high school science fairs where the kids had more sophisticated microprocessor projects.”

Watch the documentary Hacking Democracy for an in-depth look at the flawed voting machines the U.S. uses in the electoral process.

Even if your vote is actually counted (it probably isn’t), it still won’t matter who wins in the end, anyway — they are all going to carry out the exact same policies with just slightly different rhetoric behind them. It should be obvious by now that this system is not only inherently corrupt, but also failing miserably and in the midst of collapse.

    Duh, but no local, no county, no state, and not even the federal terrorist organization wants to do anything about it. Imagine that.

    Mr. Vibes, Obama was elected twice, this alone proves the machines or any other form of voting is a shill. If the sheeple don’t stop legitimizing this bullshit government by voting and reversing the shit and re-install a republic, human freedom will be lost forever. There will be no second chance.

      I live in CA, I cant speek for the rest of the country but people here are that stupid.

  • Voting machines, another piece of the illusion. Who cares if they can be hacked or not? It’s not like they are used for counting the votes of pre-determined winners anyway.

    Voting is a place were electronic age fails.

    I’m out.
    I don’t have $26 and dropped out of 7th grade.

    the cuacus counts in elko, nevada were horribly skewed towards cruz. that was the foot in the door. reports show that not only was kansas an incredible rip off- that the press boldly listed cruz winner long b4 it should have been possible. and now the pro immigration forces are plum jigger crazy with power. but don’t expect trump to quake. he has too much dignity.
