As always, early arrival makes time for great conversation before the meeting!
Speaking of elections…
We have a General Election scheduled for November 11. Primary Election season is cranking up now and will continue until Election Day on March 5, 2024.
Elections are fully dependent on computer systems. ALL COMPUTERS ARE HACKABLE. THEREFORE ALL ELECTIONS ARE HACKABLE.
We live in a world of computers that touch almost every aspect of our culture. Electronic voting systems use computers to process our votes and as such have significant control over our way of life. Some voters trust the electronic systems without reservation while others have serious concern about trusting election results because reports of hacking into corporate and government computers has become commonplace.
Dr. Walter Daugherity
If it can be hacked it WILL be hacked. Solution: welcome serious expert Dr. Walter Daugherity, learn from him, and DO WHAT WE MUST
Dr. Walter Daugherity (bio) will be our guest speaker for this meeting. His presentation will focus on “Improving Our Elections” (also see his video on Rumble: Why Voting Machines Must Go) by sharing his research on how electronic voting systems operate and what needs to be done in order to insure trust in the system.
