If one were to read the Mueller report, one would have seen laid out the efforts of the Russian government in infiltrating voting systems in the US.
So the Federal Government is looking into whether an election day break down of polling software in the heavily Democratic Durham County was a victim to this effort.
On Election Day in 2016, some Durham County voters complained that the electronic poll books registered them as having voted when they hadn’t. The company blamed the trouble on poorly trained poll workers and inadequate computer maintenance. A report by a security consultant hired by Durham County’s elections board supported that claim.
This is anecdotal but I remember on election day a very conservative friend of mine in VA putting on Facebook that when he went to the polls in 2016 he was already registered as having voted.
This sort of effort seems to have two outcomes that are good for foreign tyrants, it undermines the faith in our elections and it suppresses votes.
I don’t care what political philosophy that one might adhere to, but it seems to me that securing the electronic parts of our elections would be a slam dunk bipartisan issue.
