“Internet voting” company Smartmatic to issue ‘fake’ voter receipts

Original link here:

“The voter receipt that the Comelec is to issue on Election Day will be incomplete. It will contain only the names of candidates that the voter is to mark on the ballot. Absent will be other crucial data: the location (province, city, municipality, district) and number of the precinct; the PCOS number; and the ballot number, time and date.

Thus the purpose of the receipt – as voter-verified paper audit trail (VVPAT) – would be defeated. It would not serve to foil election fraud. On the contrary, it would fool voters that the balloting is clean.

Such slip of paper would be as worthless as fake receipts that cheating sellers give out. Official Receipts must contain not only the name of the buyer, the item purchased, and the amount. It must detail the seller’s name, address, TIN (tax identification number); BIR approval; and date (if possible also time and place) of transaction. An incomplete receipt cannot serve the buyer as proof of purchase, or tax deduction. Even the cheating seller later can deny issuing such false O.R. That’s why such fake is prohibited. Yet it proliferates, due to spotty law enforcement.

If incomplete, the VVPAT too is illegal and contrary to enforcement order of the Supreme Court. The Election Automation Act of 2008 requires the VVPAT as one of five basic security safeguards of the vote counting machine (VCM). The VVPAT serves two roles: First, on the spot, it is the voter’s countercheck if his assigned VCM reads his ballot right. Second, as paper audit trail, it is the electorate’s countercheck if all the 97,500 VCMs counted and transmitted the votes right.”

A mathematician may have uncovered widespread election fraud, and Kansas is trying to silence her

From going to the Supreme Court to try and make doubly-sure that non-citizens can’t vote in their elections to setting up a voter fraud website where citizens can reportevery kind of voter fraud except the kinds that have actually happened in the state, Kansas is on the forefront of voter fraud readiness and protection.

Except, perhaps, when it comes to the machines they use to record their votes.

According to the Wichita Eagle, Wichita State mathematician Beth Clarkson has found irregularities in election returns from Sedgwick County, along with other counties throughout the United States, but has faced stiff opposition from the state in trying to confirm whether the irregularities are fraud or other, less-nefarious anomalies.

Analyzing election returns at a precinct level, Clarkson found that candidate support was correlated, to a statistically significant degree, with the size of the precinct. In Republican primaries, the bias has been toward the establishment candidates over tea partiers. In general elections, it has favored Republican candidates over Democrats, even when the demographics of the precincts in question suggested that the opposite should have been true.

Clarkson’s interest in election returns was piqued by a 2012 paper released by analysts Francois Choquette and James Johnson showing the same pattern of election returns, which favor establishment Republican candidates in primaries and general elections. The irregularities are isolated to precincts that use “Central Tabulator” voting machines — machines that have previously been shown to be vulnerable to hacking. The effects are significant and widespread: According to their analysis, Mitt Romney could have received over a million extra votes in the 2012 Republican primary, mostly coming at the expense of Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich. President Obama also ceded significant votes to John McCain due to this irregularity, as well.

While Clarkson has found the same statistical irregularity in a number of localities, her efforts to confirm whether they amount to fraud have been centered on Sedgwick County, Kansas, due to the locality’s use of Real Time Voting Machine Paper Tapes, which provide a paper trail that other localities don’t have. However, her efforts to verify Sedgwick County’s election returns have been repeatedly shut down.

She first requested a recount of the 2013 election, but the timeframe in which a recount could have been requested had passed. She then requested the machines’ computer records from the Sedgwick County registrar, which told her to kindly shove off and sue Secretary of State Kris Kobach if she wanted the records so badly.

When Clarkson initially filed her lawsuit requesting the paper records from the voting machines, her suit was denied because a judge ruled that the paper records constituted ballots, shielding them from the state’s open records law. This ruling is suspect at best, given that the paper records do not have voters’ names assigned to them; they only record when and how a ballot was cast for recount purposes.

Vote Coin conceptualized and invented by Charles Level in 2013 VoteCoin©™

Thank you for visiting the official Vote Coin blog.

Vote Coin is an open source voting system. It was inspired by bitcoin in 2012, and allows for citizens to vote for candidates with a transparent system.

What makes Vote Coin different from the traditional 70 year old voting technologies, is that Vote Coin is transparent to everyone and allows for voting from anywhere there is an internet connection. After the so-called elections are closed, computer savvy individuals will have public access if they desire to audit the chain of votes which will have unique hash IDs. This will make sure that all the votes are tallied legally, and accurately. The Vote Coin ledger will then be backed up, and published, so that it can be audited at any point in the future. No system is perfect, but with a free and open system citizens have the chance to improve on the technology.

When was the idea of cryptographic voting conceived?

Voting technology is a taboo discussion because many people do not want to jeopardize their jobs and stature by challenging the now archaic voting system.  But discussions of a cryptography based voting system can be traced back to several discussion boards over the past 15 years. One such paper is the Chris Karlof paper called “Cryptographic Voting Protocols: A Systems Perspective” https://www.usenix.org/legacy/event/sec05/tech/full_papers/karlof/karlof.pdf

Recent Vote Coin concept:

Early in 2013 when bitcoin was starting to bloom and gain major mainstream attention, Charles Level started posting theories, ideological concepts, and starting various discussions about Vote Coin (votecoin VoteCoin©™ ). About 100 posts were made by Charles Level to Reddit categories, over the years, and several individuals and entities claimed to have created vote coin, and even started a sub category called /r/votecoin.

In 2014 a fictional person calling themselves “Steven Funk” perpetrated to create the idea of “Votecoin” and started a page on a so-called crowd funding site called Startjoin.com. This was not the first instance of VoteCoin being discussed. Our team has followed their so-called “fund raising campaign” but have not seen any credible mainstream evidence that their code was created or successfully implements.
