DATA DRIVEN VIEWPOINT: We need to wake up and take back our voting processes. Voting has to be taken out of the control of government and political parties. This is insane.

NEW CERTIFICATIONS, PLANNED EXPANSION:
Black Box Voting has been investigating and reporting on this disconcerting
trend for nine years now. Everything we've been reporting has not only turned
out to be true, but is increasing. A press release today about the planned
expansion of Unisyn into more USA locations renews attention on foreign
ownership of corporations selling voting systems into the United States.
Unisyn is owned by a Malaysian gambling outfit.
Another major elections industry
player, Canada's Dominion, purchased the massive Diebold Election Systems
division (which it shares with ES&S); Dominion also owns Smartmatic, which
handles electronic vote-counting in the Philippines and Belgium.
is now handled in several states by Barcelona, Spain-owned Scytl. In January
2012, Scytl acquired the largest election results reporting firm, SOE Software.
Accenture, now based in Dublin Ireland (formerly headquartered in tax-haven
Bermuda), claims copyright over the massive electronic voter registration/voter
history databases used in several states, including Pennsylvania, Tennessee,
Colorado, Wisconsin and Arkansas.
Accenture purchased its voter registration
unit from Election.com, a Saudi-owned company based in the Cayman Islands.
Because a computer will only do what it's programmers and administrators tell it
to do, whoever issues the commands gains ultimate control over how it receives,
counts, and reports votes, voter registrations, and voter histories.
UNISYN: According to Barry Herron (formerly of Diebold Election Systems), now
Director of Sales for Unisyn, "Unisyn and our business partners are actively
supporting installations in the States of Missouri, Iowa, Indiana, Mississippi,
and Virginia. We intend to expand into other states in late 2012 and early
Unisyn also recently made inroads into Puerto Rico.
Another Unisyn election
product called "Inkavote" is used in 4 million-voter Los Angeles County (Calif)
and in Jackson County Missouri.
IS THERE A PROBLEM WITH FOREIGN OWNERSHIP OF USA ELECTION SOFTWARE?
Not if you don't mind some unknown guys working offshore controlling whatever
they choose to in the software processing votes and voters.
