Yeah, if you research that company Diebold, I think they've since changed their name, there's a lot of suspicious back door kind of deals going on. A team from Princeton did a study to see if they could manipulate the current voting system using current technology and succeeded. Had a mock election with the actual machines to see if they could hack them and they did.
Think of other countries, Russia, North Korea, Iraq, Iran, Mexico.. there are a lot of places where corruption is clear within the government. Pablo Escobar controlled a portion of the Colombian military and had politicians in his pocket when he was around. If you apply the same logic to our system it seems you would see similar things.
