Rick Roll The Vote

Hypothetically, do you think that the electronic voting stations are penetrable? I am just curious about how the polling stations are set up. In Canada we do things the old fashioned way with pen and paper, but downstairs I know you guys are using electronic stations. How are these populated? Is someone in charge manually configuring the ballot at each station (this I somehow doubt)? If not are the ballots configured at a head-end in each state, or even federally and then populated over a public network?

If this is the case... hypothetically, would one be able to get in somehow and change the ballot? I'm not talking about anything malicious like fucking with the tally or anything like that. Just expose the security flaw by adding Mr. Rick Astley to the presidential ballot, and letting democracy run its course. This way people can save the time of writing his name in.

Could you imagine how hard it would be to hack into it. And what if you got caught? Theyd have to start all over again. Theyd have to check every system to make sure no damage was done. Imagine the amount of trouble youd get into. I wouldnt even think about doing it
Im off, last year of school and all, I had something longer but char limit fucked that up. So yeah, had a good run here. Thanks for the memories. Thanks to the staff and users.

It can absolutely be done. See here. All you need is a memory card, programming and lockpicking skills, and a curtain around the voting booth.
