16 million Americans will vote on hackable paperless machines
Experts agree that paper ballots are needed, but eight American states will use completely paperless machines in the 2020 elections regardless. What are your thoughts on this? Comment below.
Despite the obvious risk and years of warnings, at least eight American states and 16 million American voters will use completely paperless machines in the 2020 US elections, a new report by New York University’s Brennan Center for Justice found.
Paperless voting machines persist despite a strong consensus among US cybersecurity and national security experts that paper ballots and vote audits are necessary to ensure the security of the next election. The Brennan Center report points to the Senate Intelligence Committee investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 section, which also recommends paper ballots for security and verification.
