5. A slick presentation but not what it seems

Supposedly, any registered voter can be a "delegate" to their virtual nominating process and vote for who will be the candidate. However, I have read elsewhere that the board in control of this organization has given themselves a veto power over the choice of candidate. It doesn't say this anywhere that is easily findable on their website. They do say "Americans Elect candidates will be certified by an independent committee and must meet a set of standard qualification criteria such as background checks." Once their "party" is on the ballot in all states, how could average participants stop them from substituting their favored candidate? About the nominating elections they say, "Every vote will be counted fairly and accurately, and will generate a printable confirmation." How do we know how their computer counts the ballots? What would your individual printed confirmation do for you?

They also say that they will use individual contributions from participants to repay the "loans" from the organizers, which sound like a sweet deal if they can pull it off.

Here's the link to the website: http://www.americanselect.org
