unwastaken writes: Algorithmic vote flipping can perhaps now be added to the list of troubles during the GOP primaries. Statistical analyses have appeared showing that vote manipulation may be occurring. The models used paint a rather compelling picture that the primaries are being manipulated for a predetermined outcome — Mitt Romney as the Republican candidate. The original analysis was based on South Carolina. Votes there were counted by Spain-based Scytl, who acquired technology from Diebold. There is even a source forge project that helps organize the data. Slashdot has talked about the possibility of this happening before.
