    Sure, we can gripe about whether Hillary "bought" her nomination, or that Trump will ride the wave of Populism. I'd still like to think that we, as voters, get to decide - for better or worse. It's no secret that Voting machines are pieces of garbage. I'm frankly surprised their vulnerabilities aren't more discussed. 43 states use machines that are over 10 years old and susceptible to any manner of abuse. A disgrace... (on a bright note, here in Oregon we vote by mail, at our leisure over a multi-week period - it's awesome.)

    Yeah, 15 year old boxes that look to be 20 year old.

    Maybe secure by extreme obsolescence?
