Seven Essential Primers
on "The Computerized Votefraud vs. Honest Elections" Issue

The First Seven Articles below are your essential primers. These articles give you a complete overview of what has taken researchers 30 years or so to uncover. The "Greatest Cover-Up of All" is your basic primer; "A House Without Doors" deals with how the major TV Networks (especially ABC, CBS, NBC) fixed elections using their creature, Voter News Service (VNS), from 1975 or so, until the year 2000. (In order to pave the way for the next phase, centralized computerized votefraud for the entire country, Voter News Service had to 'commit suicide' to pull off the Florida Election Scam of 2000. The third article, "See Astounding Picture Proving Big TV Network Hoax" -- is a supporting piece to articles one and two, with regard to Voter News Service. The fourth article below, "Pandora's Black Box" brings you up to the state of election fixing technology in November 1996. And the fifth article, "Inside a US Election Vote Counting Program" is an up to the minute expose about how current day election computer programs are built to fix elections, not to ensure an accurate result. These articles constitute about 30 8 1/2" x 11" pages -- and can be read through easily in 1 to 2 hours, depending on one's reading speed. The sixth article immediately beneath these was written by veteran journalist Ronnie Dugger in 1988 and published in The New Yorker magazine. It is 30 pages in itself, and well worth reading for those are so inclined. And after that is the Dan Gutenkauf section which has up to date research which is essential for every votefraud investigator. Dan proves the law is STILL on our side -- where election officials are using computerized systems, they are simply violating the law! The sixth article is "How a Private Company Counts our Votes on Election Night" by investigative journalist Christopher Bollyn -- an eye witness report of exactly how the citizens have been replaced by mysterious private companies for vote counting in the USA. The seventh Article is "Big Fix 2004" by investigative journalist Daniel Hopsicker -- and article which reveals that those running major vote-counting companies have been repeatedly convicted of felonies regarding bribery and other crimes related to acquiring influence.

Four Historic Articles -- Ronnie Dugger (1988), Roy Saltman (1988), Dr. Susan L.M. Huck (1976), and Dan Smoot (1968)

The Dangers of Computerized Voting
by Ronnie Dugger
(written in 1988)

The landmark cover article which appeared in The New Yorker magazine on November 7, 1988
This article is worth the time for anyone to read. The only reason we didn't include this in the above "Five Primaries" is because it takes longer to read.

Accuracy, Integrity, and Security in Computerized Vote-Tallying
by Roy G. Saltman
(compiled in 1988)

This study by Roy Saltman was done under the auspices of the Department of Commerce in conjunction with the Institute for Computer Sciences & Technology under the auspices of the National Bureau of Standards. This is a very important report as far as cataloguing the identified dangers in 1988 -- none of which have been effectively addressed by 2004 -- in fact we've gone in the opposite direction.

How Elections are Stolen  (Coming Soon)
by Dr. Susan L.M. Huck

(written in October, 1976)

This is the article which alerted Citizens for a Fair Vote Count Director Jim Condit Jr. to the computerized votefraud issue -- way back in 1977, about a year after the article appeared in November, 1976. A dedicated patriot and member of the John Birch Society, the late great Jim Stephanopoulos of Cincinnati, Ohio, handed him this article from American Opinion magazine -- which became The New American a decade or so later. (JBS official, John McManus, kindly gave us written permission in 1981 to disseminate this article, provided proper attribution was given to American Opinion and Dr. Huck.) Two years later, in 1979, when a city council slate organized by Jim Condit Jr. saw the computers crash in the middle of the count, -- just as the Huck article had warned was happening all over the nation -- the investigation was on.

Punch Card Voting
by Dan Smoot
Historic and Prophetic Article Written in 1968)
In this far sighted article Dan Smoot had already identified the key problems of punch card voting -- a system designed to permit fraud
and make fraud impossible for the public to detect. At the end of this article, he correctly called for the outlaw of all computers in the  process of vote counting.
His first paragraph is especially prophetic, and has come true. In honor of the memory of the late Dan Smoot (1913-2003) and all the patriots who were fighting subversion by computerized votefraud from the beginning, we must restore honest elections.

The most important articles on the votefraud issue from the Network America e-wire list archive can be found here:


Two Books are so far available (as of July 2003) on the "computerized votefraud vs. honest elections" issue.

Here are other WEBSITES that are "cutting edge" on the computerized votescam issue:
This is the official website of the Canadian-based International Voters Coalition headed
by indefatigable investigator and crusader Brent Beleskey. Now being revamped and updated, here you can find in  the audio/video section the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Company) documentary which appeared on the program Undercurrents (similar to PBS's Frontline). The program aired in November 18, 2000 across Canada and in the American border states. Reruns aired 9 times. The program was entitled "The Voting Machine."
Lynn Landes is a careful, professional reporter. Thankfully she has turned her attention in a big way to the "computerized votefraud vs. honest elections" issue. There is a treasure trove of information on this website. Her "voting security" page is here:
Here is a powerhouse website from a man with powerhouse credentials. Dr. David L. Dill is a Professor of Computer Science and, by courtesy, Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. He has been on the faculty at Stanford since 1987. He has an S.B. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (1979), and an M.S and Ph.D. from Carnegie-Mellon University (1982 and 1987). He is on the California Secretary of State's Ad Hoc Touch Screen Task Force and travels around the Country speaking and educating on the inherent dangers of current DRE and voting machines.
The website of Dr. Rebecca Mercuri. Computer scientist Rebecca Mercuri has stepped into the public arena to lend credibility and expertise to the movement for verifiable voting systems. See Dr. Mercuri's invaluable testimony on behalf of California activist Susan Marie Weber as given to the California Secretary of State, May 2002:

The Cal Tech / MIT Voting Technology Project.
July 2001 Report of the Caltech-MIT Voting Technology Project:
Voting - What Is, What Could Be

The Risks Digest
Another periodical / publication of computer scientists and academics -- important work on verifiable voting. Hosted by Peter G. Neumann, a computer scientist whose credentials are impressive: He has been employed in the SRI Computer Science Lab since September 1971; spent eight years at Harvard (1950-58, with my A.B. in Math in 1954), S.M. in Applied Math in 1955, and PhD in 1961 after returning from my two-year Fulbright in Germany (1958-60), where he received the German Dr rerum naturarum in 1960.

This site, also run by Brent Beleskey (Director of International Voters Coalition) will deal with election issues related to national constitutions, the law, and computer technology. It also will follow the money trail in the world of corporation-run "public" elections. In other words -- WHICH private corporations are secretly counting your vote -- and our votes. Read hear about how the League of Women Voters and others took against any kind of verifiable voting. They WANT easily rigged elections.

This is another indispensable website brought to us by Brent Beleskey. We are not talking about "Thomas Jefferson" style direct democracy here. We're talking about a so-called "direct democracy" that, in fact, by-passes the will of the people via easily rigged internet and telephone voting -- totally devoid of a a verifiable paper trail. Billions of dollars have been spent by these Bad Guys of Ballotdom--  to promote the theft of the world via crooked computerized internet and telephone "elections"; To begin to understand the evil agenda of these proponents of this bogus "Direct Democracy" movement, Mr. Beleskey recommends the important book "Democracy Derailed" by David Broder of the Washington Post. You can read about a meeting they had to plot against the rest of us here.
