The country’s first electronic election seems to be turning into a farce. Indeed, the reports are coming in of the sort of election rigging that one would expect from 3rd world countries, not France. It turned out that an "online-primary" claimed as "fraud-proof" and "ultra secure" as the Maginot Line is vulnerable to a Blizkrieg of multiple and fake voting.
The oncoming election was supposed to anoint a rising star of the moderate right – Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet, 39. The latter was the Party's candidate in the election for mayor of Paris in 2014. The only problem was that she abstained in the final parliamentary vote on same-sex marriage a few months ago. The industry experts pointed out that it was going to be a tight election.
Afterwards, journalists from Metronews claimed that it was easy to breach the allegedly strict security of the election and voted a few times under different names in order to prove their point.
The new approach suggested that Parisians had to vote by making a credit card payment of €3 and providing the name and address of someone on the city's electoral roll. However, Metronews journalist managed to vote 5 times in total by paying with the same credit card under different names which, by the way, included “Nicolas Sarkozy”.
This situation appeared especially tricky for the UMP Party, because the latter has been accused of election fraud earlier. The matter is that back in 2012, the UMP almost split amid allegations of ballot-stuffing and other dirty tricks in an election in order to replace Nicolas Sarkozy as the national party president. An ex-Prime Minister, François Fillon, accused his competitor, the Party Secretary General, Jean-Francois Copé, of "fraud on an industrial scale".

|How do you think Bush got in on his second term. It was tied until it came to Florida's vote and it didn't help that his brother Jeb was governor at the time. The electronic voting booths software was flawed, Blacks that should have been able to vote were not on the voters list,etc etc.|

Give me a break already. Every count they did Bush won. There are laws on the books on how recounts are to be done and democrats didn't want to follow them. They wanted to rewrite the laws after the election. That's what the Supreme Court ruled on and made the correct judgement. Now in Minnesota, Al Franken ended up winning because the democrats were allowed to keep recounting until miraculously Franken who was down a few hundred votes, kept finding votes here and there until, you guessed it, he ended up winning. If you let the democrats decide how recounts are done, you are guaranteeing that their candidate will eventually "find" enough votes to win.

|Thank you Unsub, what you said is exactly right. Public sector unions and Acorn are only a small sample of examples of Democrat/(Marxist) voter fraud. Every conservative must go out and vote in 2014 to send a message to our representatives that we have had enough lies, fraud, and corruption in general, and it HAS to STOP.|
|As long as any country allows career politicians and party contributions without forensic accounting oversight for future paybacks no election anywhere in the world will ever be "fair"|
Even without ballot box stuffing or electronic election rigging you already have countries (you know who you are) making it almost impossible for known and documented citizens to be unable to vote because they fail to meet specific criteria like having a photo driving ID even if youre blind or medically incapable of driving to give just one example
The end result is that it makes it harder, impossible or even less likely that some groups of people, usually those on lower wages, the sick, elderly or unemployed to be able to vote which then stacks the deck and removes any remote hint of "fairness" to give just one commomplace method of visually, publicly and worst of all LEGALLY tampering with election results
