The Democrats are already setting the stage for claiming that the election is illegitimate, as they release ‘facts’ about how voting machines can be hacked. Then they go on to cover their ass about 2020:
While there’ve been no reports of modems being hacked in previous elections, the vulnerabilities are well known, and hackers have the tools to exploit them.
Fuckery in just two weeks.

Democrats before last election: Election machines can be hacked!
Democrats after winning last election: Election machines cannot be hacked!
Democrats before this election: Election machines can be hacked!
Democrats after winning this election:
The fact that anyone listens to, or takes these people seriously, is a pretty strong statement about our stupidity as a species.

Shows you how stupid these guys are. That ain’t a modem, it’s an accesspoint or hotspot.
And it doesn’t matter who uses it because I’m sure (Because it’s cheap, upbiquotus, and pretty much required) that the communication between the machines and the mothership are encrypted.
There’s no way those machines got certified if they weren’t.

Awfully trusting of you to think the machines couldn’t get certified if their software or communications security were (most likely intentionally) compromised. Substandard shit-tier tech gets to market with some regularity, even when it has to clear regulatory hurdles that are supposed to prevent exactly that from happening.
Said hurdles can be and are ignored, especially when big politics and big profits are concerned. If the regulators are captured (and there is no government regulatory agency not captured at this point in time), this is really very easy. Those who produce the machines pretend to be legit, and the regulators pretend to believe them. Fortunes are made and everybody but the public gets their proverbial dick sucked.
Besides the obvious incentives for allowing such fraud, there is also no disincentive in the form of consequences, even if caught out dead to rights. Or at least there hasn’t been in quite some time now. If there ever are, I doubt seriously that said blowback will come in the form of officially sanctioned prosecution of the offenders. It will almost certainly come from outside the system by extra-legal means.
As further proof of this practice writ large, I give you the covid shitshots. A boondoggle of incomprehensible scale and both known – and as yet unknown – harm, committed knowingly and with malice. That the ill effects are only now coming to the forefront in sufficient quantity to change the narrative – well more than a year too late for those who trusted the science™️ – is all part of the design of a system that has been perverted into it’s current form by scores of people inside it with motive and opportunity to do so.
So no, I have zero confidence in nor any reason to believe these voting machines aren’t thoroughly compromised both in the ability to change tallied results right on the machine by simple flipping of results by a predetermined truth table, or even algorithmically to try and better mask the manipulation with a bit of randomizing. As well, tweaking the data either in transit or once uploaded to their destination servers is easily achieved if the software has been designed to afford those capabilities.
Obviously, it would be easier to do the data manipulation at the back end in a centralized location, and that is most likely where the bulk of it takes place. However, being able to pick off the comms in near real time would be most helpful in allowing the perpetrators of fraud to discern how large their scam must be to counteract the real voting data and achieve their desired result. This helps avoid the blatantly obvious bullshit of stopping the counts (to provide the extra time to engineer the fix needed). Then there is he issue of the audit trails, which are themselves not tamper proof, and being computer data are trivially easy to erase if one needs to pull an impromptu Rosemary Woods and hide the evidence.
That these machines are all closed source proprietary systems is itself evidence of bad intent. If a public system – used for such a fundamentally important civic purpose as we are told voting is (ha) – cannot be scrutinized for integrity, then it must be assumed to have none.
And none of that even accounts for the fact the slate of candidates is almost universally dogshit, irrespective of party affiliation. So, we are presented with lousy choices, and then cannot be assured the integrity of the process of choosing our favorite political whore is accurate anyway. It’s a heckuva system.

I’m still in shock that he Democrats openly stole a Presidential election.
Never would have thought that could or would happen.
Republicans electorally slaughter the fascists and the fascists declare “FRAUD” and don’t relinquish power??
5 years ago I would have donated aluminum foil to anyone that said something like that.
Christopher Leavitt · October 25, 2022 at 6:24 pm
If the machines can be hacked, it seems perfectly reasonale to hand count the votes.

The overwhelming likelihood is a Red Tsunami.
And then: nothing changes.
Rolling over and doing nothing is already baked into the cake:

The Republicans are famous for getting power and then becoming distracted with irrelevancies.
