The real threat of vote-rigging

Donald Trump’s supporters say the integrity of the coming U.S. election is threatened by illegal voting.  Hillary Clinton’s supporters say it is impossible to rig the U.S. election.  They’re both dead wrong.

The real problem is the vulnerability of electronic voting machines to hacking and the lack of transparency in vote counting.

    Great post. I was shocked when this issue died down so quickly after it became known how corrupt the voting machine industry is. It’s very sad.
