Did Obama win because electronic vote fraud was prevented in Ohio?
Just how hackable IS our electoral system?
Who would want to hack it, and why?
Has it ever been done?
SWINGSTATE is the title of the feature documentary EON is producing in collaboration with FreePress.org and the Columbus Institute for Contemporary Journalism (CICJ).
It will answer those questions by telling the 8-year story of the discoveries made by reporters Bob Fitrakis and Harvey Wasserman and their investigative team as they expose vulnerabilities to electoral fraud and work to prevent their use .
It is a story that parallels the rise of both the electronic voting machine industry and the Election Protection movement in the United States.
The film will expose the dangers of letting our votes be counted electronically, on secret, proprietary software by private companies with partisan interests.
With the corporate agenda of internet and even cellphone voting fast taking shape, the film will lay out the reform measures needed to prevent any more stolen elections in America.

As Gerry Bello and Bob Fitrakis say in their recent article, Romney may have lost, but the voting system is still broken [ http://www.freepress.org/departments/display/19/2012/4827 ]
"Failure to deal with mass disenfranchisement, fraud and an archaic system based in slavery is a sure guarantee of the possibility of minority rule for many decades to come. The system needs systematic and national overhaul.
The struggle for democracy and for a just and humane society involves more than voting. It involves constant citizen participation at all levels in all decisions. As long as society relies on an election system that is designed to be gamed and defrauded, then gamed and defrauded it will be. The end of disenfranchisement based on race, age, and economic class must start now. "
Please Help us tell the inside story of how investigative reporting, the Green Party, the Election Protection movement, pre-emptive litigating and just plain angry voters saved the Dems from Karl Rove in a key 2012 battleground state.
This is a joint appeal from EON and FreePress.org for your support in our collaborative effort to provide unbiased, in depth coverage of how potential fraud was prevented in the key swing state of Ohio, which has been ‘ground zero’ for election theft in previous elections.
Our collaboration in election coverage since 2004 has resulted in 5 nationally broadcast documentaries and an extensive series of interviews and video reports on this issue. EON’s YouTube Channel http://www.youtube.com/user/eon3/videos, with over 1,617 subscribers, http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLF06C90E53E4D6919 has over 40 posts in the playlist on this issue.
This time there was potential fix set up by the combined efforts of Karl 'Boss' Rove, the Romney campaign and Ohio state GOP officials. This is the story of how that fix was nixed.
Why Did Karl Rove’s ‘Head Explode’ Election Night on Fox News?
There he was, near midnight on election night, ‘Boss Rove’ his very pundit self, disputing the other networks’ (and Fox’s own) data-crunchers’ unanimous decision to call the election for Obama. There he was, boldly naming exact counties in Ohio, which he was sure would soon flip for Mitt.
Why was he so sure? Why was he so wrong?
Were those counties rigged for a fix? If so, why wasn’t the trigger pulled?

A Template for Deep Democracy
The dramatic, impowering inside story of how a handfull of people committed to election protection saved the election for Obama - despite disagreeing with his policies - suggests a powerful agenda for repairing America's vulnerable electoral system.
