    For the most part, "Election Systems & Software" owns the voting machines.

    BUT many voting machines are *programmed* by Republicans.

    Voting machines are manufactured by these main groups:

    Election Systems & Software

    The McCarthy Group

    The Omaha World-Herald Company

    Diebold (Which changed its name to Premier Election Solutions, Inc.)

    Check out these links for info on their shady dealings:

    No, they are owned by government. However, many of them are manufactured by companies that have close ties to the Republican party, and many of those do not produce a paper, traceable record of the votes that were cast. They could easily be programmed to modify the actual vote count.

    That is why many American citizens are worried about the reliability of the voting machines. If any company or political party is able to control the voting machines (or the companies that manufacture them), then democracy crumbles.

    Where did you get that information? Voting machines are owned by the state and cities.

    Sure. You have to know Hillary has already told them to set the machines not to count 30% of Obamas votes.

    I don't know but I DO know that in the documentary, "Freedom to Fascism", there is a program that was created to curve votes.

    With politics and corruption hand in hand as the are, I would not be surprise.
