President Barack Obama may have voted for Mitt Romney yesterday when he cast his Early Vote at the Martin Luther King Community Center in Chicago’s 4th Ward. Nobody knows for sure. Even him.
He cast his vote on a 100% unverifiable touch-screen e-voting system made by Sequoia Voting Systems (which is now owned by a Canadian firm named Dominion Voting.) It is scientifically impossible to ever know if his vote was recorded accurately, as per his itent, or not on that type of voting system.
“I can’t tell you who I voted for,” the President joked, as noted by our colleague Mark Crispin Miller in ashort blog item today wryly headlined “Obama votes for Romney”. The President’s joke may not have been nearly as funny as he had intended it.
