    Go back to paper and counting by hand. Ain't no voter fraud by hacking up here in Canuckistan. Instead, we just have idiots in Alberta voting conservative, to the point where you could paint a bale of hay blue and it would get the most votes. Alberta: the stupidest province in Canada, and that's after Ontario voted for Doug "Dumb Fuck" Ford.

    Paper ballots.
    Marked in pencil.
    Counted by hand.
    In the presence of not less than least 3 witnesses.
    Including interested members of the public and candidates (or their representatives).
    Functionally Unhackable.

    Canada is superior again.
    Paper ballots are hand counted by two people for every ballot box. The results are never in question, the process only takes a couple of hours, and is WAY more secure.

    Pencil and paper. Used in Canada, and in an awful lot of other democracies. We get results in an hour or two. What's this US fascination with voting mechanisms and electronics?

    They test the machine by shaking it like a Christmas present lmao. Hacking into those voting machines did seem way too easy. I believe sometimes, the older ways of doing things were indeed better, in order to reduce vote tampering. Putin knows what he's doing that's for sure. Sad thing is that he might not be the only one in on it. There are hackers out there that can do almost anything. One thing I can agree with drumpf about is that paper is good when it comes to voting. You can't hack paper votes I guess right? I would hope not.

    Happy to be Canadian. Independent elections commissions, independent electoral boundary commissions, no gerrymandering, no voting machines, no politicians in charge of the voting process, 100% uniform voting standards for federal elections no matter where you vote, 100% paper ballot system. We still don't have proportional representation but it will come eventually.

    This problem won't likely change unless someone hacks enough of these machines to say that someone ridiculous won. For example, Adolf Hitler or Vladimir Putin, or Kim Jong-Un. Or what if someone hacked the machines to randomly replace a candidate's name with one of those three and the general public started seeing news announcements of the results of each of these three candidates. I guarantee you that would result in immediate change the entire process.

    See the man on the street questions are a loaded gun. This has been proven in the past. You can ask literally any question and do something called editing to make it fit the narrative. This is why you mostly on see garbage like this on the Jimmy Kimmel show or similar shit. Because a normal question like who was the first president can be turned into a failure across the board, one like how do you know government got voting right, is beyond loaded as fuck and almost no one can answer that question. It does not belong in a show like this unless the show has devolved into shitting the literal bed. This is no longer satire and you are now shilling for the far left.
    He pretends to make fun of the premise to help keep the shows legitimacy, he then goes on to set up an idea that the man on the street interview had a good premise somehow. You cannot be against an idea and support it at the same time, yet somehow John makes himself look like a far leftist. Ignore reality all so you can push an agenda and somehow get a laugh for disagreeing with the same premise. Maybe, just maybe you should contact Jon Stewart because whoever is running this show has lost the fucking plot.
    They even prove it in the video. They link a video where someone pretends to be showing you how to get access and even claims all you need is a ball point pen and yet doesn't show that part, she shows everything already completely taken apart and just mirrors movements. This is why you cannot just believe anything you watch. Perhaps that is all it takes, but without a real demonstration it is pure sensationalism. This is why people look to ignorance like Trump because at least with him you know what you get, no reason to have to dive to look for the subversion that is buried. This is why people do not trust the news.

    He then goes on to make the startling jump from a voting machine being connected to the internet is the same exact thing as programming a card that the machine will later use be connected to the internet. You have to understand technology to see that this is how Trump got elected, because people in the news have absolutely no clue how any of it works. They trust their far left researchers that push an agenda today instead of pursuing the truth so most everything is not properly fact checked just enough to support "out bias."

    Are voting machines secure? No idea, seems like he forgot to address this question. But he sure made a lot of jokes on the assumption that they aren't. This episode feels like it was written by tech illiterate people, for tech illiterate people, all of whom want to feel smart because they are confident about what they think they know about tech.

I am so overwhelming concerned about the overtaking of our government to the billionaire elites and their access to this obvious vulurability in our voting system.

    unattended voting machines can be found at my rec center. You would need to cut the locks (under security cameras), plug in, turn on machines (under security cameras), know how to hack the individual machine while not disabling the machine, and hope no one at the center asks what you are doing. And do this with the knowledge that it is illegal even though the number of votes on one machine would be highly unlikely to change the result of an election. Election fraud is done by preventing people from voting -not tampering with machines.
