This really proves nothing, anyone can technically hack an ATM as well as the voting machine. It's like he's implying that people can just walk up to an ATM or voting machine and just plug their laptops in.

No need for a paper ballot. Just let the machine print a receipt of who you voted. After checking if the receipt is correct, you must drop it in the ballot box.

You cannot widely 'hack' an election without getting caught because of data analysis. If 80% of the people in a county are democrat and the election goes to a republican there has to be a good reason reflected in the exit polls or it was clearly voter fraud. In close races i think the DNC has been able to steal some elections and rig primaries (like they did with Bernie Sanders), paper ballots might help deter this. Data analysis is another bulwark against voter fraud. But a paper back up, and voter ID would also help insure election integrity. One of the biggest statistical red flags was the 2008 election where Obama got 69 million votes. By 2012, 4 million votes had disappeared, and he only got about 65 million. That is unprecedented. But I get it, Dems think Bush stole the election from Gore so fair is fair.

This demonstration of electronic voting machines supposedly being 'hacked' actually demonstrates nothing... The voting machines were NOT hacked... they were deliberately reprogrammed by the guy who set up the voting machines and he was responsible for administering them... that's called a SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR... NOT A "HACKER". A System Administrator reprogrammed the electronic voting machines to subvert an election.... That does NOT demonstrate a vulnerability to hacking because the method of reprogramming the machines REMOTELY wasn't used to "hack" them.... but that's exactly what you're supposed to think happened. Despite what this video suggests these electronic voting machines aren't connected to the internet! The video stronly suggests the machines are connected to vulnerable networks that could be hacked... the video asserts you could "email a virus" to a system administrator of a voting precinct and wait for the virus to infect the network... Okay that might work assuming the system administrator falls for your phishing scam to hack his computer.... AND assuming it's the same computer he uses for system administrator access to the network of electronic voting machines. That's hardly the case... because the system administrators for these voting machines access the machines directly... the system administrator account can only be accessed on a electronic voting machine itself.... not through a computer... because this was a deliberate security feature to prevent these types of hacking vulnerabilities. The electronic voting machines have no connectivity....... and the NYT uses this highly suggestive propaganda implying these voting machines have connectivity and vulnerable to remote hacks when it's really the opposite. Electronic voting machines are as secure/vulnerable as ATM's.

Mate, you are completely wrong. The issue raised in this video is that electronic votes aren't reliable. Once you vote, there is no proof that you voted for person A or person B, so it could be changed and nobody will notice. With paper ballots, once you cast a vote, it will remain that way, because you can't change the paper without opening the entire ballot box. The voting machines were hacked, because the system administrators were hacked and through the hacked system administrators the voting machines were reprogrammed to rig the vote. The system administrators are another single point of failure - if the system administrator decides to rig the election, nobody can do anything about it. With paper ballots, everything is constantly being verified by everyone else and there is always a paper trail that will let you recount the votes. Then there is the issue of who manufactures the voting machines. A lot of hardware comes from communist China, which doesn't have the US's best interests in mind. If you think hacking requires an internet connection, you are very mistaken. Hacking is about finding any vulnerability, and the most sophisticated attacks happen by infecting hardware. Many voting machines read the inserted election cartridge and also search for a firmware update on them, and automatically install it if they find it. Imagine if the cartridge was infected - the bootloader of the voting machines would be whatever the hackers want it to be. And if you think these machines don't have internet access, you are very wrong. https://freedom-to-tinker.com/2016/09/20/which-voting-machines-can-be-hacked-through-the-internet/

You are so full of crap that you must have brown eyes. Scare tactics without any proof. Voting machines are test run with sample ballots before they are put into use and must pass an even vote between the candidates. Since none of them are connected to any network there is no way to influence or change the vote. You would like paper ballots like Minnesota uses? There was a poll worker who found a box of ballots in her car the next day, all for the same candidate.

Those are projections >percent of the total votes tallied Isn't that how it's supposed to be? How many people voted is open knowledge (or at least estimable - especially since vote counting happens in thousands of counties and you can just count how many counties have finished tallying the votes and use them as the percentage of total votes tallied) and as votes get counted you add every vote to the total percentage of votes tallied

Well, countries like China don't need to rig the elections (there isn't really any anyway), they directly control what candidates are put out to be voted on, and then they directly change the results depending on the party's likings. Most of Chinese people don't know they can vote, and not much voting happens, everything is controlled by the party. If you want to talk about HK, it is basically China' supposed system but slightly better (???). Except it is written into law that Beijing chooses which candidates the HK people can vote on. caimin15221522 is also right...! Independent candidates in China often face intimidation, house arrests, and physical violence. The BBC actually tried to interview one but was forcibly pushed away by local thugs/police employed by the CCP, even though the candidate herself wanted to speak.
