ballot hang voteA hue and cry is mounting around the country that voting machines used on Election Day are eminently hackable.  Congress is investigating charges by the Office of Homeland Security that Russia attempted to hack into voting machines in 21 different states.  So is the integrity of our election system being undermined?  Are computer hackers able to change election results?  What gives?
