Timely reminder about Smartmatic and elections in Venezuela

A while ago (pre Covid-19) I collaborated with Guillermo Salas (Former
Professor, Physics Department, Universidad Simón Bolívar) in his documentary about electoral results' anomalies in Venezuela: "The history of the arrival of electronic voting in Venezuela, the dark relationship between Smartmatic and the Chavez government, the statistical evidence of electoral fraud and the entry of Smartmatic into the USA." A timely reminder, considering that Venezuela is headed for another electoral round run on Smartmatic "technology".
