Hacking Democracy

"Is voting controlled by 100 million voters or one guy sitting in his grandmothers basement?"

Hacking Democracy is a 2006 documentary exploring the possibility that United States elections are faulty, rigged, or outright stolen through insecure electronic practices. It is part of the Wake Up Sheeple activist movement of the early 2000s. The documentary questions results from the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections. There is an interview with Diebold, the manufacturer of voting machines used in the elections. Amongst many flaws discovered are the phenomenon of negative vote totals in some districts, and glitchy memory cards. Alongside the point are various misrepresented voting districts and other apparent tallying issues.
