  • An Increasing Concern

    This will not be a great treatise on the subject but as a place holder for new events that I come across. The increasing concern relates to the insecurity of the electronic ballot system. I have two reasons for saying this.

    The Russian hacking event proves that they can interfere, at the very least, the process. Perhaps they can actually change ballot numbers or maybe even individual ballots. TB Continued but in the meantime here is a Senate bipartsian report: http://www.charleswmoore.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Senate-Intel-Report-On-Election-Interference.pdf

    A few years ago, I had a problem with the electronic machine while absentee voting. It was in a very secure courthouse. As I voted the machine came up with an error. So I called the monitor over to look at it: they said “may I view the screen” and I said yes. They fiddled with it and, in the process, viewed my voting. Then they said ” Yes go ahead with process” However, when I reached the end the red error light existed but so did situation to register the ballot. The said register the ballot and I did this. I left the courthouse. Later, concerned, I called the courthouse and told them what happened and they said they would check into it. In a few minutes they called back and told me to come in and vote absentee paper ballot and I did this. I n casual conversation they said they would negate my vote on the electronic machine and my precinct would vote the paper one. Is it so easy they can negate a vote on the electronic machine? This is what concerns me!
