Hacking Democracy

Just finished watching this documentary and I'm kind of freaked out people aren't talking about it more. This is one of the biggest elections ever. It's definitely the biggest in my lifetime. It basically shows how the memory chips that store vote counts are vulnerable to hacks, because they have an executable file on them (even though the maker, Diebold, denied there was an .exe file). The creators of the film did a great job, but I really liked hearing Bev Harris' story the most. She was so diligent and uncovered such important information just by being super curious. Great documentary.
