This is really important and I hope it will be recommended! It needs to go viral asap and what to do about it is explained below. Unfortunately, DK generally rejects any information about electronic voting machine fraud as conspiracy theories, so I am giving you as much confirmation as possible below.
There are now two articles written in major magazines about the possibility of electronic voting fraud in this election, especially in Ohio. Harper’s Magazine has an article in the November 2012 issue by Victoria Collier, entitled, “How to Rig and Election: The GOP Aims to Paint the Country Red.” It can be accessed through this link:

There is also an article on the Romney Family Investment ties to Hart Intercivic, a Voting Machine company in Ohio in Forbes Magazine October 20, 2012. It’s by Rick Ungar and the title is “Romney Family Investment Ties To Voting Machine Company That Could Decide The Election Causing Concern”:
The information on this was first revealed by Gerry Bello and Bob Fitrakis at FreePress.org and was confirmed by Lee Fang at The Nation in a story of his own on the “crony capitalism” of Tagg Romney, the son of Mitt Romney.
It was also reported here on Daily Kos here:
The Daily Kos: "The new owners of Ohio’s voting machines under the brand name HART Intercivic is none other than Tagg Romney, the son of one of the candidates Mitt Romney... This brand was one of two targeted after 2004 as being highly corruptible. The infamous Diebold was the other."

WHAT TO DO
Here is what you can do:
1. Sign the Credo petition to the Department of Justice about Romney family ownership interest in Hart Intercivic voting machines.
2. Email the public editor of the New York Times demanding that the Times investigate Romney family ownership interest in Hart Intercivic voting machines.
3. Send this information to everyone you know. I cribbed the details from the Credo petition, but I’m sure they won’t mind if others crib also.
Below is my letter to the NY Times Public Editor:
It is reprehensible that the press is not reporting that the deciding votes in Ohio in this election could be cast on electronic voting machines that have been shown in 2007 in a study by Ohio's Secretary of State to be easily corrupted. It is even more reprehensible that the press doesn't even mention that Hart Intercivic, which manufactures these machines, have deep financial ties to the Romney family.
Hart Intercivic is majority owned by H.I. G. Capital which controls two of the five seats on the Hart Intercivic board. H.I.G. Capital was founded by Tony Tamer, a major bundler for the Romney campaign, and it is one of the largest partners of Solamere Capital, an investment fund founded by Tagg Romney and Spencer Zwick, Mitt Romney's chief fundraiser from the 2008 presidential campaign.This makes the Romney family part owner of the voting machine company, through it's interest in H.I.G. Capital.
If the New York Times won't report this information, who will? We feel that we are living in an Orwellian state, where the press is bought and sold by those who want to turn this country into a corporate oligarchy.
We look to you to make this information known to the general public!
