A True Halloween Horror Tale
3 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just saw this documentary on HBO last night.The timing of this program could not have been more perfect. Right after Halloween, I was scared plenty.

I had long been aware of many of the facts depicted. However, until I saw a hacker change the votes on a Diebold Memory Card before the votes were cast, and change the results of the test vote, I was neutral on this issue.

We Americans who have been worried about this very issue have been culled into silence by those who would call our concerns "Conspiracy Theories" This film should dispel any such notion and wake up most citizens to demand more security in our voting process.

The film depicts at least 3 major issues, from Al Gore actually receiving negative votes in Volusia County, FL, to the final coup de grace, the hacking of the actual memory card.

Diebold Officials deny any such vulnerability, but they have no answer for the filmed facts. In fact, a well known politician from Colorado actually owns an interest in one of the voting machines known to contain serious vulnerability. This machine was used during his landslide election victory. It appears that optical scan ballots are the most easily hacked.

Wake up, America, it's possible that our "free elections" are not really free at all, and we have absolutely no way to find out for sure. Write your Congressman and demand a serious investigation.

We must not be complacent about our most fundamental democratic right! At the very least we must demand verifiable paper ballots to make sure our votes are not hacked.
