Voting Machines

I just had a thought about a simple way to scam elections that use electronic voting machines that do not have paper trails.

You go to polling places in areas that traditionally vote a certain way, and bring a big magnet. Maybe it’s a really big electromagnet in a truck. Maybe it’s a device (and here) that generates an electromagnetic pulse. You go near the machines, turn the magnet on, and wham – everything in those machines is erased or screwed up, and the votes from that polling place cannot be counted, swinging the election toward the preferences of people in other precincts.

Call your Congressional Representative and demand voter-verified paper trails. It doesn’t MATTER how secure they say these machines are. If I can’t see for myself how that my vote is recorded correctly and backed up, I simply will not trust the election results.
