GLOBAL INTERNET VOTING FIRM BUYS U.S. ELECTION RESULTS REPORTING FIRM
Black Box Voting ^ | 1-12-12 | Bev Harris

Posted on 01/17/2012 10:09:34 AM PST by STARWISE

In a major step towards global centralization of election processes, the world's dominant Internet voting company has purchased the USA's dominant election results reporting company.

When you view your local or state election results on the Internet, on portals which often appear to be owned by the county elections division, in over 525 US jurisdictions you are actually redirected to a private corporate site controlled by SOE software, which operates under the name ClarityElections.com.

The good news is that this firm promptly reports precinct-level detail in downloadable spreadsheet format.

As reported by BlackBoxVoting.org in 2008, the bad news is that this centralizes one middleman access point for over 525 jurisdictions in AL, AZ, CA, CO, DC, FL, KY, MI, KS, IL, IN, NC, NM, MN, NY, SC, TX, UT, WA. And growing.

As local election results funnel through SOE's servers (typically before they reach the public elsewhere), those who run the computer servers for SOE essentially get "first look" at results and the ability to immediately and privately examine vote details throughout the USA.

In 2004, many Americans were justifiably concerned when, days before the presidential election, Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell redirected Ohio election night results through the Tennessee-based server for several national Republican Party operations.

This is worse: This redirects results reporting to a centralized privately held server which is not just for Ohio, but national; not just USA-based, but global.

A mitigation against fraud by SOE insiders has been the separation of voting machine systems from the SOE results reports. Because most US jurisdictions require posting evidence of results from each voting machine at the precinct, public citizens can organize to examine these results to compare with SOE results. Black Box Voting spearheaded a national citizen action to videotape / photograph these poll tapes in 2008.

With the merger of SOE and SCYTL, that won't work (if SCYTL's voting system is used). When there are two truly independent sources of information, the public can perform its own "audit" by matching one number against the other.

These two independent sources, however, will now be merged into one single source: an Internet voting system controlled by SCYTL, with a results reporting system also controlled by SCYTL.

With SCYTL internet voting, there will be no ballots. No physical evidence. No chain of custody. No way for the public to authenticate who actually cast the votes, chain of custody, or the count.

SCYTL is moving into or already running elections in: the United Kingdom, France, Canada, Norway, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, South Africa, India and Australia.

SCYTL is based in Barcelona; its funding comes from international venture capital funds including Nauta Capital, Balderton Capital and Spinnaker.

This is the New World Order. Control the elections, control the world. The crooked criminals in congress are unwilling to do anything to protect the vote, they are too busy sucking up as much as they can for themselves. Truly sad.

Boris Bazhanov’s Memoirs of Stalin’s Former Secretary, published in 1992 near the end of Chapter Five, reads as follows:

“You know, comrades,” says Stalin, “that I think in regard to this: I consider it completely unimportant who in the party will vote, or how; but what is extraordinarily important is this — who will count the votes, and how.”

I keep thinking about the voting “results” founded in Honduran communist president Manuel Zelaya’s briefcase - for an election that never happened.

I wonder how that happened..... Specifically through what election results tabulation company...

I find it interesting that “Dr. Riera” the founder of SCYTL died at age 36 in March of 2006. I also find it interesting that I can’t find anymore about “Dr. Riera” than just that which is on the about the founder page that states his name was “Dr. Riera”, and bits, and pieces about his education in Barcelona Spain. This guy is about as blank as Obama, and the information about SCYTL strikes me as hype.

Perhaps others could find out more.

I thought there was a federal law against exporting sensitive computer software out of our country. And, couldn't this be considered a more sensitive issue than say - stopping Boeing from building a plant in South Carolina? Can anyone here say voter fraud?

That’ll be good, we need international observers, this cuts out the need for that by having all the outcomes predetermined in Venezuela, the 57 states, and/or China and Russia. Thanks STARWISE.
