How Secure Are Our Elections?
What if you knew that hacking a voting machine is so easy that at a cyber security conference in 2017 an entire array of commonly used machines were hacked in a matter of hours?
What if you knew that in 305 elections conducted between 2004 and 2016, Republican candidates outperformed exit poll predictions on election day by an average of six percentage points?
What if you knew that the odds of that happening by random chance are 42 million to one?
42 Million to One is a political thriller about voting machine manipulation. Lucy Gilmore, a young reporter, begins a journey to uncover proof that voting machines have been hacked and election outcomes have been altered. She discovers the real events that demonstrate just how vulnerable our democracy has become. This eye-opening book speaks not just to voting machine corruption but the state of our democracy and why our struggle to govern effectively becomes more difficult every year.
“They say truth is stranger than fiction. But when fiction is this true, it’s the best of both worlds. 80 MILLION TO ONE is really gripping, really important (especially now), and really good.” — Jonathan Simon, author of CODE RED: Computerized Elections and The War on American Democracy
“An important book that should interest every American concerned about protecting our democracy.” — SENATOR MARK WARNER, VIRGINIA
