"Our voting machines are not connected to the internet." Want to know what else wasn't connected to the internet? The Siemens PLCs controlling the centrifuges destroyed by Stuxnet. (The computers used to program the PLCs were connected to the internet.)
It won't be fixed because fraudulent results benefit the party that can't win the popular vote. I leave it to you to guess which party that refers to.

The republicans (Senate) don't want to fix it. They corrupted the machine, they corrupted the political landscape, they corrupted America. Why fix it when it risk losing their job, money and reputation.

I find it hilarious how stupid John Oliver is about technology. Your Amazon Echo is not actively recording 24/7 and sending that audio feed to Amazon. Even with the massive computing power that AWS has available to it, that amount of data would be incomprehensible. The listening for the "Hey Alexa" hotword is done _locally_ . After the Echo device has identified your hotword, _then_ all words subsequently spoken will be sent to Amazon for processing in order to understand what you said. This applies to the Google Home as well. Please stop spreading conspiracy theories John Oliver. You're better than this.

The Netherlands went from voting machines in the 90's, back to paper ballots in 2009 because of an unsolvable flaw in voting machines: the machines place too much power in too few hands. Bribing or blackmailing one single programmer can change hundreds of thousands of votes all across the country. Even with a paper trail, chances are that many of the manipulated votes go undetected.

Why even have voting machines in the first place??? Is it so hard to take a ball pen and make a cross on a sheet of paper? I've been a voting official counting such votes for several decades now and it has always worked flawlessly. Every. Single. TIME!

Man it's astounding how many things are half assed in America, even something as important as elections.
Flealfy45 Pred dnevom
In my country voting is done by putting a piece of paper with the candidate's name written on it in an enveloppe. If the piece of paper is tempered with, the vote is counted as a blank, if there's more than one piece of paper in the enveloppe, the vote is counted as a blank, if there's no piece of paper in the enveloppe, the vote is counted as a blank. The box in which people put the enveloppe is locked and sealed. There was never any problems with the counting. Sure some elections were considered fraudulent but not because of the vote counting process. So why the fuck would you bother with technology while little pieces of paper work ?

I haven't seen something in a long time that has made me this genuinely happy and sparked an uncontrollable laughter and joy. Thank you so much John and HBO. I wish i could see the look on Bob Murray's legal teams face when they see this epic shit show. Seriously the greatest roast in internet history. I hope Trump tweets about this.

I’ve lived in Houston my whole life and have voted in every election since Bush v Gore, and I have literally never cast my vote on anything BUT those touch screens. I’ve never once been able to do a paper ballot. That’s particularly worrisome considering I am in Texas, which is poised to become a swing state any year now. Makes me wonder if I should just start doing absentee voting.

The voting _machines_ might not be connected to the internet, but all too often the servers that consolidate all the votes are left connected to the internet. It's those hackable servers where the biggest risk is.

An 11 year old hacked into the Fla. voting headquarters and changed the numbers and it took only 10 minuets and there was no trace of it. I have seen it on Time .com. So I am convinced the Russians did it in 2016 to put Trump in the white house. His actions and attitude seem to verify that he is Putin's agent.

On one hand I understand that Russia is trying to influence our Presidential elections and that's a huge problem but on the other hand the popular vote that these machines are used for doesn't actually mean anything. Trump lost the popular vote anyway and the electoral college still put him in office. I think the problem here is not necessarily with Russia but the electoral college that can do whatever it wants with no oversight or repercussions.

I never even heard of electrical voting machines. Here in Germany we write it down and put it in a box for people to manually count it. Idk if thats safer tho. Also they might be a thing in bigger cities.
