Sunday, I heard that in Oregon you could change any already-cast vote online, with a date of birth and a name. Monday, I heard 4chan was having some lulz with that rule in Oregon and Washington.
Has anyone got an authoritative media story about this? How is the story progressing? Is it true?
@progo You can't change a vote, but you can ask for another ballot with only name and date of birth, which cancels any ballot you sent before, AFAIK.
@Arwalk ah, cancel. Got it. So, 4chan could still literally cancel everyone's vote as many times as they wanted, if they bought a phone book and hired a turk army.
@progo If by "buying a phone book" you mean "using another database that was leaked previously" and by "hiring a turk army" you mean "running some python scripts", yeah.
They're already doing that.
@Arwalk for ALL mail-in ballots? Because of the incredible stupidity going on in this election, I endorse it if 4chan attempts to cancel EVERY vote.
@progo i think they're doing their best to reach this objective. :)
@progo I heard this too, but no substantial reports...must be damaging to only one political party
You're a good hacker, give it a try from behind a VPN!
I am sure there are plenty of public figures in Oregon, whose addresses and birthdates are known.
@progo seems like probably just disinfo to obscure the real, or create new conflict for the vote - several interested parties would float shit like this - but frequently that's because it seems plausible.
I give it a 30% chance of being correct.
