42 Million to One
A Political Thriller Inspired by Real Events
42 Million to One is a political thriller for the turbulent times in which we live when you have to ask yourself: 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 4.6 percentage points?
What if you knew that the odds of that happening by random chance are forty-two million to one?
42 Million to One weaves an enthralling story about voting machine manipulation to steal an election--and the fundamental tenets of our democracy. 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.
