US election shocker: is this how the vote will be rigged?

Votes are being counted as fractions instead of as whole numbers

by Jon Rappoport

August 1, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Power Outside The Matrix, click here.)

As we know, there are a number of ways to rig an election. Bev Harris, at blackboxvoting.org, is exploring a specific “cheat sheet” that has vast implications for the Trump vs. Hillary contest.

It’s a vote-counting system called GEMS.

I urge you to dive into her multi-part series, Fraction Magic (Part-1 here). Here are key Harris quotes. They’re all shockers:

“Our testing [of GEMS] shows that one vote can be counted 25 times, another only one one-thousandth of a time, effectively converting some votes to zero.”

“This report summarizes the results of our review of the GEMS election management system, which counts approximately 25 percent of all votes in the United States. The results of this study demonstrate that a fractional vote feature is embedded in each GEMS application which can be used to invisibly, yet radically, alter election outcomes by pre-setting desired vote percentages to redistribute votes. This tampering is not visible to election observers, even if they are standing in the room and watching the computer. Use of the decimalized vote feature is unlikely to be detected by auditing or canvass procedures, and can be applied across large jurisdictions in less than 60 seconds.”

“GEMS vote-counting systems are and have been operated under five trade names: Global Election Systems, Diebold Election Systems, Premier Election Systems, Dominion Voting Systems, and Election Systems & Software, in addition to a number of private regional subcontractors. At the time of this writing, this system is used statewide in Alaska, Connecticut, Georgia, Mississippi, New Hampshire, Utah and Vermont, and for counties in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming. It is also used in Canada.”

“Instead of ‘1’ the vote is allowed to be 1/2, or 1+7/8, or any other value that is not a whole number.”

“Weighting a race [through the use of GEMS] removes the principle of ‘one person-one vote’ to allow some votes to be counted as less than one or more than one. Regardless of what the real votes are, candidates can receive a set percentage of votes. Results can be controlled. For example, Candidate A can be assigned 44% of the votes, Candidate B 51%, and Candidate C the rest.”

“All evidence that [rigged] fractional values ever existed [in the GEMS system] can be removed instantly even from the underlying database using a setting in the GEMS data tables, in which case even instructing GEMS to show the [rigged] decimals will fail to reveal they were used.”

“Source code: Instructions to treat votes as decimal values instead of whole numbers [i.e., rigging] are inserted multiple times in the GEMS source code itself; thus, this feature cannot have been created by accident.”

A contact who, so far, apparently wishes to remain anonymous states the following about the history of the GEMS system:

“The Fractional vote [rigging] portion traces directly to Jeffrey W. Dean, whose wife was primary stockholder of the company that developed GEMS. He ran the company but was prohibited from handling money or checks due to a criminal conviction for computer fraud, for which he spent 4 years in prison. Almost immediately after being released from prison he was granted intimate access to elections data and large government contracts for ballot printing and ballot processing.”


power outside the matrix


I see no effort on the part of the federal government, state governments, or the mainstream press to investigate the GEMS system or respond to Bev Harris’ extensive analysis.

It’s not as if media outlets are unaware of her. From shesource.org, here is an excerpt from her bio:

“Harris has been referred to as ‘the godmother’ of the election reform movement. (Boston Globe). Vanity Fair magazine credits her with founding the movement to reform electronic voting. Time Magazine calls her book, Black Box Voting, ‘the bible’ of electronic voting… Harris’s investigations have led some to call her the ‘Erin Brockovich of elections.’ (Salon.com)… Harris has supervised five ‘hack demonstrations’ in the field, using real voting machines. These have been covered by the Associated Press, the Washington Post, and in formal reports by the United States General Accounting Office…”

So far, her analysis of GEMS seems to be labeled “too hot to handle.” Press outlets prefer to report the slinging of mud from both Presidential candidates’ camps. Meanwhile, the actual results of the coming elections—including Congressional races—appear to be up for grabs, depending on who controls GEMS.

  1. Countries that are not corrupt and have a functioning political system have in large numbers abandoned voting machines for this reason. Even though in those countries the chances for fraud are small, they don’t want to take any risks.
    This means that if a country uses voting machines you should be very careful and not trust the outcome of the elections. In most cases the results will be rigged.

    • Kim Smith says:

      SO TRUE. OUR GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN CORRUPT FOR DECADES, MAYBE EVEN LONGER. BUT IT HAS GOTTEN ABSOLUTELY CRIMINAL OVER THE PAST 35 YEARS. THE BUSH FAMILY, CLINTON’S AND OBAMA HAVE ALL WORKED TOWARD THE SAME GOAL…THE DESTRUCTION OF WESTERN VALUES. WE HAVE TO LOOK AT THE POSSIBILITY THAT AS FAR BACK AS THE KENNEDY FAMILY, THE GLOBALISTS HAVE BEEN IN CHARGE. TED KENNEDY WAS THE SENATOR WHO INTRODUCED IMMIGRATION CHANGES WHICH ALLOWED FOR THE MUSLIM INVASION. TED KILLED A WOMAN IN A DRUNK DRIVING ACCIDENT, HIS CAR RAN OFF THE ROAD AND INTO A LAKE. A FEMALE PASSENGER WAS TRAPPED AND SHE DROWNED. OR AT LEAST THAT IS WHAT WE WERE TOLD. HOW DID TED GET OUT OF THIS WITH HIS POLITICAL CAREER IN TACT.? THIS ACCIDENT HAPPENED AFTER THE CHANGE TO IMMIGRATION BUT IT SHOWS THAT OUR SYSTEM WAS ALREADY BROKEN, BENEFICIAL TO THE ELITE’S. THE SAME WITH DICK CHENEY, WHO SHOT A MAN WHILE HUNTING, WITHIN MINUTES, AUTHORITIES WHO WERE NOT EVEN PRESENT AT THE SHOOTING, CLAIMED IT WAS AN ACCIDENTAL SHOOTING. THE WHOLE SYSTEM IS CORRUPT AND IT IS THESE SAME POWERS WHO ARE NOW WORKING TO STEAL OUR ELECTIONS.

      THEY STOLE THE PRIMARIES FOR BERNIE. WHAT IS SO SCARY IS THAT NO ONE IS EVEN HIDING THIS FACT. 11 STATES HAVE OPEN INVESTIGATIONS INTO VOTER TAMPERING AND FRAUD. IN AN HONEST ELECTION, GOVERNMENT LEADERS WOULD HAVE DEMANDED A NEW VOTE, IN CALIFORNIA, MILLIONS OF VOTES WENT UNCOUNTED. RUSSIA HAS RELEASED EMAILS FROM THE DNC, WHICH ALSO PROVE THE ELECTION WAS RIGGED FOR HILLARY. SO WHY ISN’T CONGRESS DEMANDING A NEW VOTE?

      WE ALL MUST TURN OUT IN SUCH HIGH NUMBERS THAT IT WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE TO STEAL IT. BECAUSE IF HILLARY IS ALLOWED TO STEAL THIS ELECTION, THEN WHAT IS THE POINT.

      • Diane Fischer says:

        I like your article very much. The only thing that I really want to comment on is your closing sentence. Because if Hillary is allowed to steal this election, then what is the point. This is exactly what Hillary Clinton is trying to get all the Americans to believe and think. There are even people that will say Hillary is going to win anyway so I’m just going to vote for her. These people just don’t care and many are uneducated

        Don’t let all of the corruption and lies pull you down. We must all Stand Together United in such high numbers like you said.

        Let’s make America great again. God Bless America

    • Christine Glass says:

      This explains Hillary’s smugness. She knows she will win and this is no doubt why. Very sad for people who believe they live in a free democracy.

      • Theodore Torres says:

        What nerve obama had telling everyone on TV that they don’t rig elections. So what was that all about Bernie at the convention? Did he forget that the only way he won twice was from rigging? smh

      • Patricia says:

        She is so corrupt. Bill is a rapist, but Hillary told the victims if any reported him, “I know where your children go to school.” Their pets were killed. 49 people have been killed on the Clinton watch. The media is controlled, even the DOJ. What a sad situation for America. The Clinton Foundation collects and distributes millions with 10-15% for charitable purposes. The emails would have proved this.

      • Dee says:

        Well you can’t really say that. The past cases are all republican rigging the system. Remember Karl Rove? Michael Connell ? Ohio? So i’d say the Republican has the means and experiences to do it again.

    Jon…Need permission to copy this article and send to Congressmen, newspapers, republican state chairmen, etc. Will forward to you what I copy if it is okay. This is the nastiest news, and much needed.

      the usa election will be rigged and i have the proof here, below is a youtube showing how someone tried to vote for sanders and got another vote, trump is correct the USA ELECTIONS WILL BE RIGGED…..

    Jon…need your permission to copy this to send to newspapers, congressmen, election commissioners republican committee chairmen…this needs to go everywhere.

    • From Québec says:

      i’m sure you don’t need Jon’s permission.
      Just post this article with the link, wherever you want to.

  5. From Québec says:

    I think there is only one way to stop the election rigging in your country.

    1- You need paper ballots with a receipt,
    2- And the Military to watch the whole operation, or, you could for instance, use veterans who are not working. They would be happy to do it.

    • Dan says:

      We have a law in the US called “Posse Comitatus” which prevents the military from policing domestically.

      • Michael Burns says:

        Posse Comitatus might not be applicable in the case of federal election and the exercise of the Democratic purpose for presidential election under the 12th amendment of the bill of rights.
        Domestic policy is very clear of its statutes and their aims, generally it is intended to public harm, public right to gather protest, and for that matter; to vote.
        Correct me if I am wrong but are the Marine Corp and the the US Navy not excluded from this Act.

        • Jon says:

          The Navy is excluded because they are sea warfare and per se not land based. The Navy its self has stated that it will not participate in an act of posse comitatus, that also includes the marines. Coast Guard is also excluded.

    • John Magurn, USNR-Retired says:

      Just tell me where to sign up! However, if it cannot be detected poll watchers will do no good unless polls are required to use paper ballots. Even then, there are so many ways to cheat, an honest election is a thing of the past!

    • Bill A says:

      Paper ballots can be invalidated by a vote counter putting apiece of graphite under a finger nail and then marking the name of the candidate the voter didn’t choose. Low tech but it deals with paper ballotsBill

      • arcadia11 says:

        the voting hoax is very much like the “just label it” hoax, which involved an obscene amount of money, did not address the problem (which was the poisoning of our food and soil not the absence of labels on the poison), was not meant to succeed, was a giant distraction, and both sides were controlled by the same group.

        i know how to handle the dishonest vote counting. don’t vote. just walk away – find something wholesome and empowering to do.

  6. Dan says:

    I could fix this mess. Never use floats where integers suffice.

  7. magenta444 says:

    At this point, I don’t think it matters who wins the election. Rigged or not, the result will be the same: Full Disclosure.

    • From Québec says:

      Oh boy! You are so wrong. In this election, there is a possibility of nominating 1 to 3, or maybe 4 and even 5 Supreme Court Justices.

      Trump has already a list of possible Supreme court justice that are fantastic, very close to Scalia style.

      On the other side, if crooked Hillary wins, she will nominates the Supreme court Justice, who will kill your Constitution and your country. The first thing you will see is the confiscation of your guns and the abolishment of your First amendment.

      Is that what you want???? If not… Wake-up and vote Trump.

      • Don McCoy says:

        You nailed it.

      • Christine Glass says:

        Thank you!

      • magenta444 says:

        Québec, I respect your view, but I must also ask that you be respectful of mine. I don’t believe it is going to make an iota of difference as to who becomes president. The current system is beyond redemption and it’s going to take more than a few band-aids to fix it, IMHO. However, if you feel called to vote, then by all means, vote. But please don’t assume that everyone who disagrees with you is wrong. Time will tell the tale.

  8. Beano McReano says:

    Been calling for paper ballots and signatures. Electronic voting is a JOKE. Cannot be traced physically so it’s like digital currency. Make it what you like.

  9. From Québec says:

    I’m curious. What are Floats and Integers suffice?
    If it fixes the mess, who or what can stop using them?

    • Aron says:

      Floats are numbers with decimals (floating point notation). Integers are whole numbers, excluding all fractions. It’s been a long time since I’ve written computer code but it used to be that you had to assign numbered variables in code as either floating points or integers. Thus, the code in GEMS ought to simply assign the vote count variable as an interger in order to remove the possibility of assigning a fractional value to a vote. Having said that, float or integer, I’m sure the GEMS programmers would find another way of corrupting the vote.

      I would love to see vote results that showed less than 10% of the population voted at all. Reports about virtually empty polling stations across the US would be difficult to suppress. This to me would be a serious protest vote that may disrupt the system (wishful thinking perhaps as this would require an informed populace).

  10. David Robbins says:

    Just a programming lesson here folks. As a programmer who has worked with databases, I can tell you that whole numbers are always stored as either LONG or INT. It really makes no sense to “tally” or sum using decimals. No candidate ever receives 455.7 votes. Tallying is in whole numbers. Reporting averages are indeed done in percentages, or using DOUBLE as described.

    It is not surprising that the underlying data structures are altered to accommodate doubles at the summary level. The developers are setting up the database to hold fractions. This may be to make reporting easier, such as displaying that “Candidate A received 35.5% of the vote in district 10”. But since this would be for reporting purposes, not tallying purposes, you could make the case for using the fractions.

    But there should be a balancing concept here, where your summary tallies are in whole numbers – “Candidate A received 45,677 votes”. This should match the sum of all the individual ballot vote records. In other words a good developer would have both total columns with whole numbers, and any special columns that require percentages to contain the fractions. Again, tallying requires whole numbers, reporting requires percentages.

    The data here is rudimentary – the goal is to tally, and that is done in whole. A good database would have summary records in whole numbers where you “eyeball” sums against the totals of the vote counts. Fractions may be permissible only to make reporting easier, but NOT the tallying. Tallying is always, always always done in whole numbers.

    Conclusion – someone left some wriggle room, or did not know what they were doing. Yes, there are abundance of idiot developers out there. In this case, with so much at stake, you would hope that a company selling these machines would ensure that tampering and or gross errors could not introduced in such a fundamental way.

    • Noah says:

      Can confirm from a programmer perspective, this is essentially going out of one’s way to make fractional votes possible. The decimal totaled percentages wouldn’t even necessarily need to be stored except if it was records being placed into a summary table for quick display. The individual records of votes definitely should be dealing in whole number (integers). According to the article, there were comments in the source code related to this “feature” of allowing votes to count as different fractional amounts. This sounds like essentially a pretty full featured election fraud software package, but obviously this shouldn’t be used in an actual election.

  11. I think there “could be” a number of ways, Jon.

    I read somewhere that Obama had been voted in by a number of “dead people” 2nd term.

    Electonic voting going into the 2012 election… not good… criminal…

    The report assessed each state based on how its laws and procedures matched up to best practices in the categories identified above. These metrics were developed in consultation with leading election officials and security experts — in each of these areas. We rated each state on a five-tier scale, from inadequate through excellent. We determined that five states – Minnesota, New Hampshire, Ohio, Vermont and Wisconsin – are the best prepared to catch voting system problems and to protect voters from disenfranchisement due to equipment failures. On the other hand, Colorado, Delaware, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and South Carolina are the least-prepared states. The rest of the states were missing one, two or three key procedures or systems that would adequately protect voters.

  15. Aarons Almond Staff says:

    In a study performed by doctorates from Harvard on dishonesty and cheating a clear insight to our current situation was realized. When bankers and politicians were tested against each other for dishonesty and cheating, bankers lied, cheated, and were dishonest twice as much as politicians. This study was turned into a documentary now being shown on Netflix named (Dis)Honesty. Watch it. These are the 2 groups in charge of all decisions and financing of said decisions.

    We are hypnotized by the eyes of a 2 headed snake whose poison is a cross between white phosphorus, glyophosphate, and printing ink and whose fangs have become the hammer of the whole earth (MIC). How do we [provide due process of law against the] 2 headed snake and not kill the citizenry? I believe without Divine intercede extinction is probable for our species. After the in your face corruption presented by the 2 ruling parties of the most powerful nation on earth being exposed and the people still picking sides we should be quarantined from ever leaving our solar system.

  18. Luke says:

    The sad reality is the Internet is huge and well meaning reformers such as Bev Harris and yourself reach all too few people with this information. It takes money to organize people and even if a group demonstrates and protests against the rigged voting system. If the MSM chooses to ignore it, then the demonstration is like a tree falling in a forest. You don’t change the system, the system most often changes you, marginalizes you, or just ignores you.

  20. rabbitnexus says:

    It’s inevitable. The USA is already gone.

  21. Richard Forscutt says:

    It sounds like which party controls the voting machines, controls the outcome of the elections. Do county clerks and state secretaries of state control who counts the votes from the voting machines? Secretaries of state and county clerks are elective offices.

  22. Glenn says:

    All votes should be made on a machine where a pin is pressed through a paper ballot and connects with a backing that electronically records the vote and sends a signal to the voter that the vote made contact and is recorded. Thus an electronic record and a physical record with no “hanging chads”.

  23. C Iverson says:

    What has been written here may very well be correct. But has anyone considered that absentee ballots do not have the same scrutiny as the polls? These ballots go to a mail room and thus can be discarded and/or replaced. Now you know why absentee balloting has been expanded and encouraged.

  24. Larry Mclennan says:

    Even before voting machines were in vogue , Lyndon Johnston had votes from a county of pretty much totally Hispanics with 100 % voter turnout and who voted alphabetically for him- then there’s the Chicago vote for Kennedy in which the Forest Lawn constituency voted 100% for him. “Its not who votes and how they vote- it’s who counts the votes”-Uncle Joe Stalin- unfortunately the Dems have this methodology down to an art form.

  25. Don says:

    Why then are we using the gems system, or and computer system to count votes! Crooked hillary has showed us that we can’t trust computers in politics! Americans must demand a better way to count votes, and we must demand that I’D be required in order to vote! There is way too much election fraud coming from the democtats! And there are way to many people bragging they voted at least twice for Obama in the same election! Democrats are the king of election fraud, and crooked hillary is the queen of crime! They both must be stopped before the fall election!

    Finally the Japanese internet community has waken up to the threat of the vote-rigging program, it appears to be. After the two recent elections of the Japanese Upper House of Parliament and of the Governor of Tokyo in July, the Japanese Twitter sphere is buzzing with allegations of electronic election frauds.
    It is now almost obvious that the top three candidates for the Tokyo Governor election on July 31 were actually “allocated” votes by someone unknown under a predetermined ratio (a Twitter image of Excel table of counted votes at Tokyo’s wards and cities). https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CoxJGxkUEAA3XF-.jpg:large Let us see what the Japanese citizens do next.

    This is no shocker it doesn’t surprise me! Is there ANYTHING in our system not tainted? Even the news is tainted. We need to have someone make sure we have truthful & honest people to monitor the counting of the votes & how they were received. Also we need to make sure that people show ID! Stop the BS poor people can’t get ID! If they’re on public assistance they HAVE to have ID. I’m so disappointed in what’s been going on in our country. Not being able to trust the people we put in office to represent us. They’re supposed to adhere to our contitution & follow the rules & be fair & just! Instead we have a group in Washington that’s got so much power to make these things happen for instance the rigging of the democratic nominees. Caught red handed going in favor of one & nothing happens? Other people HAVE gone to prison for interfering in federal business like that. So the democrats who were for Bernie Sanders r going to vote for Hillary? Why? Because you’re told to. I don’t understand how we as a nation put up with what’s been happening in Washington & in this country! If you want to be heard then speak out! You need to pay attention to what’s going on & not be ignorant about it by just letting the next guy speak up. We all need to speak up & demand a government that is truthful!!

    Don’t interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties.

      I voted for Bernie. I will be voting for Hillary — not because anyone told me to. Jill Stein is an antivaxer nut with less than zero chance of winning. Trump is a loose cannon and dangerous. World leaders are afraid of him. His policies make no sense. That leaves Hillary who isn’t perfect but is closer to my leanings than anyone else.

  34. MidiMagic says:

    The real rigging of the vote is the use of the defective “vote for only one” Plurality Voting System in most states. If more than two candidates run, it unfairly favors the candidate most different from the others.

    We need the totally fair Independent Voting System. In this system, you vote on each candidate separately.
