Hackers Can Sandbag Georgia
Federal Judge Amy Totenberg from the District Court for the Northern District of Georgia has ruled the state’s election machines remain vulnerable to hacking. The judge did not say the machines had been hacked or that the vote counts had been altered. She said that the machines pose an imminent risk, and thus, procedures need to be put into place to ensure the integrity of the voting system.
Much of the judge’s ruling incorporates findings from J. Alex Halderman, a University of Michigan computer sciences professor, who has been seeking ways to curb electronic vote tampering. Here’s more from Steve Turley.
