I'm voting. Only way to fix it.
Not so sure about that, good doctor. Ever since the ties between Diebold and the corrupt politicians came out I've been pretty dubious about voting in general. I think it might take a little more than that to actually make a difference.
Diebold and cohorts most likely know the dangers of overplaying their hand. As such, they can use their position to wipe out small pockets of reason but any significant altering of the vote totals would likely lead to them inhabiting the gallows.

As long as they can maintain the fiction of a closely split electorate or an outright reich-wing apathetic electorate, they get to keep power. As soon as enough people vote their actual self-interest, Diebold et al will have to go dormant or go extinct.
