Do you think voting machine are accurate?

Voting Machine - Do you wonder how accurate the counts from these machines are?  If the counts are accurate, are they accurately tabulated when all of the machine votes are added together?

How accurate do you think the voting tabulations are in the US? I'm really starting to wonder. I know in the town where I live I'm really surprised at a lot of the outcomes based on who people say they vote for as opposed to who wins. I just read this in the Seattle times and now I really wonder. http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/nationworld/2003405767_zero12.html?syndication=rss This guy got zero votes and he knows he voted for himself and believes there are others that did as well. hmmmmmm.

I agree something is up with the machines. I think you using them could be problematic for the system. THe computerized system can leave the voting process to all sorts of manipulations. It's easire to loose digitized calculations than several thousand paper ballots without anyne noticing.

I'm getting really paranoid about them myself. I know here in my county, the local elections always seem to be won by the people that are involved with taking care of the machines.

That should have said that they are won by people who are friends with the people involved with taking care of the machines.

Voting machines are not accurate at all.

I'm starting to suspect you are right.

I think they are crooked. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JEzY2tnwExs testimony from a computer programmer intimately involved, in some sort of congressional hearing. ie. if you're voting on an electronic machine, there is NO GUARANTEE that your vote counts.

After the local election we just had here, I really have serious doubts about it. They seemed to turn out the way the people working the machines wanted them to turn out. hmmmmmm.
