How secure is your electronic vote?

(CNN) - In an era when shadowy hackers can snatch secret government files and humble big businesses with seeming ease, it's an unavoidable question as Election Day approaches: When we go to the polls, could our very votes be at risk?

According to voting-security experts, the answer can be boiled down to a bit of campaign-speak: There are reasons for concern and there is work to be done but, by and large, we're better off now than we were four years ago.

    How secure is anything now, you have the whole Republican party attempting to destroy Voting Rights by suppressing the vote that they know will support Obama.

    People have given their lives for that right and the Republicans are openly using Mafia tactics to prevent voting rights!

    The GOP is unconscionable and Criminal in its operations and should be investigated by the Justice Department.

    if it can be hacked, the republicans will do it. They've already tried to buy this one and suppress votes to steal this one, so hacking wouldn't surprise me one bit.

    Watch Ohio and Florida - they practiced on W and got darned good at it.

    If Rove is around, they're up to no good.

    Anything is possible when your own son Tagg Romney has ownership in the voting machines.
