Reckless Negligence or Deliberate Disregard: Georgia’s Election Integrity
A senior official from the Georgia Secretary of State's office admitted in testimony that a voter could hack a voting machine and alter votes in minutes, yet was uncertain about existing safeguards.
Last week, critical issues surrounding Georgia’s voting system came to the surface in the Curling v. Raffensperger trial in Atlanta. Dr. J. Alex Halderman, a computer science professor at the University of Michigan, revealed how easily Dominion voting systems could be compromised.
As first reported by Law360, Dr. Halderman demonstrated how a USB drive or a pen could be used to install malware, alter ballots, and enable unauthorized access to Dominion's Ballot Marking Device (BMD) systems, which are used for in-person voting across the state of Georgia.
In his presentation, Halderman used a pen to trigger a Dominion machine's reboot into "safe mode," gaining access to its Android desktop.
