Investigating Voter Registration in PA: Blackbox Voting Needs Your Help

Print PDF

by Bev Harris, Founder Blackboxvoting.org

It's been a while since we've done this, maybe too long for people to jump in and roll up their sleeves again for one of these "open source" public investigations, but let's see about that. I'm requesting a little help chasing down some names. If you like doing a little online research or know the terrain in Pennsylvania, and can supply any further information on the situation I outline below, I would appreciate it very much!

You can e-mail me directly ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) or you can share anything you find publicly here:

I am interested in finding out who the vendor was for the system that produced the problem below. I have learned that CIBER, a company with connections to the electronic voting industry, also had some deep involvement with the Pennsylvania Dept. of Transportation's technology.

Beware of Ting's Thing, Calif bill to force Internet voting

Print PDF

by Bev Harris, founder of Blackboxvoting.org

California Assemblyman Phil Ting has proposed AB 19, a bill to require the California Secretary of State to implement an Internet voting pilot project.

They tell us Internet voting is secure. It's not. It's not secure, and can't be made secure, but that's not even the point.

The point is it's not transparent.
The whole premise in our Constitution is that we self-govern. To do that, the public must be able to see and authenticate essential processes, like who actually voted and the vote count, and that is not possible with Internet voting.

Internet voting transfers all control to whoever runs the server. (The server is just a computer that sits in a room -- and one Internet voting company, Scytl, has its server physically sitting in Spain.)

Internet voting gives the administrator complete control over the front end (who put the votes into the system) and the back end (the counting of the votes).

Internet voting is trying to come on with a vengeance, and not just in California. It is now imminent. Unless we are vigilant, many of us will be forced to vote online in 2014 and 2016. Lobbyists are at work to persuade your legislators to install Internet voting.

Political support has been secured from officials in several states. The governor of Hawaii has announced he wants Internet voting. Secretaries of State from Connecticut, West Virginia, Washington, and Oregon are already pushing online voting, and soon you'll hear about it near you. Federal bills promise cash to states that "expedite" their voting systems, with vague language as to what that means.

Because Americans are skeptical about Internet voting, politicians and reporters describe it as "smart phone voting" and "iPad voting." They also call it "convenience voting" but what they don't tell us is that, in exchange for convenience, we will lose the ability to self-govern.

Sorry About That

Print PDF

by Richard Denne, author of Letter from a Vietnam Combat Veteran.

Overview:

Here I was a paratrooper with the 101st Airborne in the mid 1960s. One of the Screaming Eagles a warrior’s elite. In the back of my mind, I always knew that there was a chance I might end up in a prison camp. A chance I might be tortured, starved, beaten, stripped of all human dignity… I just never thought it would happen in my own country.

In 1965, the Vietnam War was in full swing. Since I had theater experience, I decided to enlist as an “entertainment specialist.” After surviving boot camp, I found myself in Advanced Infantry Training, learning the art of killing. Not the job description of a wannabe “master of ceremony.” Numerous protest and inquiries were fruitless. The military would not admit they had made an error. – A characteristic of them I was to become very familiar with.

Letter from a Vietnam combat veteran:

Print PDF

Note:  This letter originally aired on the Mike Malloy Radio Show, on January 1, 2013. .  It is reprinted here with permission from the author:

I served in the 101st Airborne as a grunt in Vietnam in 1966 and as a Door Gunner in a Gun Ship with the 129th in 1967. I also served time in the stockade where I was tortured for speaking truth to power after I survived my tour across the pond. ‘Just saw Zero Dark Thirty and thought you might enjoy the rant.

The NRA has nothing to do with gun rights for anyone. The NRA is nothing but a ‘store front’ set up for the gun and bullet makers. Our fellow citizens are so stupid as to believe that the NRA has something to do with the 2nd Amendment. It never did… From 1868 until the 1970’s The NRA supported, “strict gun control.” Do a little research! Then NIXON and the Law and Order gang came to power and the NRA created the self- protection con. FEAR! Americans are pussies and love to be afraid at all times for any reason. It is in our country’s culture and mind set for Christ sake. That’s when the 2nd Amendment became an issue. It worked! Hey, it’s still working.

What I am about to say may seem unreal to many but it is true. I served in the infantry as a combat grunt in 1966 in Vietnam. While I was the infantry all soldiers had a weapon that they had to carry with them at all times. However, when we were in a rear area, every warrior had to turn in his ammo, i.e. bullets. Mind you there was no safe place in the rear areas. Our government took our bullets away because they did not trust us even after all that training. These “assault weapons” were so dangerous the government didn’t want us WARRIORS to have access to them until we really, really needed them. What does that tell you?

Colorado Sets The Stage For A Bogus Election

Print PDF

By Bev Harris, Founder of BlackBoxVoting.org

Colorado election integrity and transparency is now officially out the window, with a series of corruption protection rules and new laws.

1. Let's begin with the unflappable Donetta Davidson, who collaborated with convicted embezzler Jeffrey Dean(1) to remove voter privacy, through a contract specification that required him to redo his absentee mail software in order to embed a method to tie voted ballots to the voters. This shifty business, which now includes all absentee ballots cast on Hart eSlate machines, has led to a blockade on ALL Colorado election accounting records (see #4, below).

2. Next, in a move that has most of us scratching our heads, Colorado Sec. State Gessler proposed new rules in December 2011 to remove requirements for continuous video surveillance.(2) Though billed as "cost saving," note that most video surveillance nowadays is simply piped into digital files stored on a Web site. Since cameras are already installed, there is no significant cost savings in allowing non-continuous surveillance.

3. Sec. State Gessler also decided to reduce the number of seals on voting machines,(2) to the chagrin of election integrity groups like Voter Action, whose investigations and litigation demonstrated vulnerabilities requiring the seals in the first place. The "cost savings" in this measure can be counted in pennies.
