On Tuesday, February 14, the Coosa County Commission will consider a resolution which would reverse the trend toward digitizing the voter process. Electronic voting systems have demonstrated gross vulnerabilities and counting errors of which only hand counting has corrected.
A National Election Commission representative testified in a recent court case in Fulton County, Pennsylvania, admitting that electronic voting systems are vulnerable and cannot be made secure with current technology.
In that same case, the voting machine vendor admitted to unresolved security issues. Even the Department of Homeland Security’s Cyberspace and Infrastructure Security agency has issued an official alert citing nine major vulnerabilities of electronic voting systems. These vulnerabilities were documented by Dr. Drew Springall, an Auburn University cryptosecurity expert in electronic voting systems.
Finally, forensic audits of electronic voting systems verify these vulnerabilities are actually being exploited. Dr. Springall states the best we can do is paper ballots with hand counts. Will the commissioners do best?
