When I here some one talk about Tech, the first thing I think about is Corruption and voting machine tampering where they rig the voting stations to swing one way like they found out in Florida when Bush ran the second term for President.
This sounds just like the first time Obama ran for president where there was found to be voter fraud, and this story sounds like the same thing, tampering with voting machines so Obama would win a second term.
When it comes to voting, Computers should be banned and not be used for any thing that has to do with getting out the Vote.
This guy ran the tech that won Obama reelection
Harper Reed, the CTO for Obama’s 2012 campaign, tells us why Obama won, why the GOP lost and what will define 2016

The Chief Technology Officer for Barack Obama’s re-election campaign probably does not look like what you think he looks like.
In fact, Harper Reed — the Obama for America CTO who led a highly-regarded team of engineers in support of last November’s victorious candidate — likes to compare his looks to those of his predecessor, the CTO for Obama’s 2008 campaign, as he did in this side-by-side photo he showed while speaking at Rhizome’s Seven by Seven conference in April:
No, Reed is not the buttoned-up, neatly-coiffed exec you might expect to run the technology behind the most important election in America; but regardless of his sartorial choices, or the way he shapes his bangs in the morning, Reed has achieved unqualified triumphs, both as CTO for Threadless, the popular online T-shirt storefront, and then as CTO for President Obama’s reelection run.
In other words: You may question his beard, but you can’t question his success.
Since November 2012, Reed has turned away from politics, turning his attention to a stealthy mobile payments app (as well as a repository of pizza GIFs). And though he’s no longer plying his trade in Washington D.C., he did reflect on what made the Democrats successful in 2012, what doomed the GOP’s chances and a couple of the issues that may define the race in 2016 in a recent sit-down interview with Yahoo! News.
