Virginia and its dodgy voting machines banned in 11 states.

There was a program on c-span with the author - does your vote count - and she said the biggest fear amongst all computer scientists is Virginia and the map above. Apparently, they are using a mixture of voting machines but these machines have been banned in 11 states as they can be hacked from a wireless location. Computer scientists have even asked Virginia to change the machines with fraud the main concern.

Virginia could be the decider and they still use the hanging chads method in some counties. The author wasn't concerned with the photo id law as it was just a simple way of obstructing people to vote. Removing 500,000 people from the voting list in Ohio she believed would give the state to the GOP. But Virginia she was fearing that if this wasn't called it could be the Florida 2000 and a trip to the supreme court.

Quick google search i found this story on virginia.

Conservatives are round holes. They cannot be expected to fit into a square hole right away. With exposure to facts, different environments and empathy they will modify into shape. If not, their children will. Conservatives defend the past and fight for the few. They are the virus that prevents progress.

That is a nightmare, but a tie is worse.

Not for our side. Wink

In all seriousness, I seriously don't think the race will come down to Virginia, so folks shouldn't be too concerned about this.

First thing : the nightmare result for any computer scientist would be EV : 404 for his side. Wink

Second thing : enough with these sucking fkcing voting machines already. In France we do everything on paper and close the polls at 8 PM and at midnight everything is counted and clean. Lazy arses... Tongue

IN NATE WE still TRUST?

I haven't seen anything pointing to a Brexit win at this point, when you factor in how a referendum actually works.
