6. People have been trying, ever since the Repugs tested the idea in Nebraska in 1996 ...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hacking_Democracy is a good starting point.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electoral_fraud is like a Christmas catalog for Repugs.

And don't forget the infamous Hack America's Vote Act: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help_America_Vote_Act#Criticisms_of_electronic_voting_machines

All this info is out there. You never see it discussed much in the media -- apparently, journos believe this sort of stuff just doesn't happen.

In a typical false-flag move, the Repugs have raised the specter of election fraud by suggesting that Dems control the voting machines -- an idea quickly debunked, thus (unjustifiably) de-legitimizing the whole topic in the minds of many:

A **lot** of people have already done the heavy lifting needed to expose this fraud, but it just hasn't gotten the public's, or even the press's, attention adequately. What it's going to take, I don't know -- with the voting public remaining so obdurately uninformed, under-informed, and willingly misinformed, it doesn't seem very hopeful. Crime does pay, apparently, where electoral fraud is involved.
