Votes Switched in Tabulation
The "Help America Vote Act" has lead to the unanticipated consequence of privatizing US election systems: "Those who cast the votes decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything." Go to www.invisibleballots.com to learn of the investigators -- including from Stanford, Harvard, and Johns Hopkins -- consulted in the creation of this gripping documentary. It’s about how swift and secret vote fraud has been enabled -- and accomplished -- via the new high-tech voting and tabulation systems now in use -- in DuPage County, around the USA, and for sale abroad. This destroyer of democracy is real and cannot be dismissed as some "weird conspiracy theory". At the film’s conclusion and in the discussion following, concrete corrective steps that can be taken right here in Illinois will be explored with knowledgeable resources.
