The Case of Dr. Laura Pressley – A Study in Texas Election Law

By Bev Harris and Jim Keller Human beings rely on one another for reality testing. Consensus is sometimes used to imply truth, but consensus is a dubious approach if a result is false. Election results can become false through error, outside “hacking,” or inside manipulation. The Texas legislature addressed election fraud as a concern when it passed laws to require…

Fraction Magic – Part 6: Execution Capacity

6 – Middlemen, Inside Access and Manipulation – A fractional voting framework is treacherous because it can be scaled to run across multiple jurisdictions very quickly. False results precisely mimic known patterns to appear plausible. In the demonstration we performed, Smith’s one-size-fits-all utility showed that a person without any programming skills at all could seize control of election results in…

Fraction Magic – Part 1: Votes are being counted as fractions instead of as whole numbers

1 – Summary – This report summarizes the results of our review of the GEMS election management system, which counts approximately 25 percent of all votes in the United States. The results of this study demonstrate that a fractional vote feature is embedded in each GEMS application which can be used to invisibly, yet radically, alter election outcomes by pre-setting…

Fraction Magic — Part 2: Context, Background, Deeper, Worse

Fraction Magic – Part 4: Presidential race in an entire state switched in four seconds

4 – Proof of Concept: Election Night Results – We used the GEMS fractional vote feature to alter an actual statewide vote database, rewriting all the polling place votes in the state of Alaska for the 2004 presidential election to change the outcome. This database was obtained by the Alaska Democratic Party in 2006 pursuant to a court order. Below is…

Fraction Magic — Part 5: Masters of the Universe

5 – Precision control to weight results – Using the GEMS “double” configuration, users can control election results using amazingly accurate vote percentages. We demonstrate this by assigning vote percentages using a children's letter-number cipher. A=1, B=2, C=3, etc. For example, H=8 and A=1 so 81.8181% is "hahaha." We helped Bush/Cheney dominate Alaska's Cheney Lakes, assigning 38.514525% of the votes, spelling…

2008/01/07 – New Hampshire election credibility

Sancho: Oh my. Wynne: Oh. Oh no! Pynchon: What is it? What is it? Wynne: Seven "yes," one "no"!  (Ballots: Six "no," one "yes") Pynchon: Oh my god! This video calls into question the accountability of New Hampshire elections. Most New Hampshire vote counts are not observable. Votes have been counted on the Diebold Accuvote ballot scanner technology, which can…
