Michigan’s Voting Machines Deemed Unreliable

The state of Michigan is in a state of insecurities and commotion as of now due to the major amount of faulty, wrecked and therefore unreliable voting machines. Ever since last month’s elections, the concluding results may yet seem to be a blur.

The errors of the polls were discovered when voting clerks found themselves incapable in making a proper and full cross check between the actual number of votes put into the machines and with the people who were recorded for balloting.

These staggering results have resulted in a complete recount in the state, but due to the defective machines at hand, this could mean that possibly at least half the number of votes will deem to be unqualified for verification in Detroit.

This also included at least a third percentage of the votes Michigan’s provinces, Wayne County. The statistics reveal that out of the 662 zones set for votes to be given in, about 392 of them did not match the tallies of how many people had actually registered for voting.

The elections director for Detroit, Daniel Baxter, summarized the matter with “It’s not good.” Since Michigan does have a law that prohibits any voting station that doesn’t add up or agree with the amount of people who registered in voting as unqualified for an inspection, the results of the election will remain as it is.

Green Party member Jill Stein initiated the recount process in the three states of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. As it turned out, the suspicion behind the validity of the machines seemed accurate, and as J. Alex Halderman from the University of Michigan stated, “Computer scientists have been sounding the alarm about shoddily made, insecure and incompatible voting machines for several years.

“The only way to find out whether technical problems or even malicious hacking have contributed large errors to the electoral tally is to audit the vote.”

Although a full and precise inspection may not occur, the recount is currently underway.
