Yesterday, I promised I'd return to reality today. Instead of more DOOM, here's something reassuring from Vox: Want to rig the US presidential election? Good luck.
Here’s why it’s nearly impossible.
A more complete explanation comes from the companion article on Vox's site.
Our system for casting and counting ballots is so decentralized, and has so many built-in safeguards, that you’d have to rig a whole lot of elections to actually sway the results. From regular maintenance of the voter registration rolls to poll workers overseen by both political parties to voting machines designed to catch anyone who tampers with counts, there are checks at every step of the process to ensure the election’s integrity.The election system is not "rigged" in the way Trump implies. There are other issues with the system, but voter impersonation isn't one of them. I'd be more worried about Trump's buddy Putin, who does have the resources to tamper with the machines in the system, messing with the tallies in Trump's favor, but that's a story for another day.
