In January of this year, NBC reported on a team of election security experts who found almost 3 dozen US voting systems connected to the internet. The three largest voting manufacturing companies, including Dominion Voting Systems, have acknowledged they put modems in some of their tabulators and scanners so that election results can be quickly relayed to the public. The problem is that this opens the voting systems up to hackers:
“AT&T and Verizon and so on try and protect as best they can the security of their phone network from the rest of the internet, but it’s still part of the internet. There can still be security holes that allow hackers to get into the phone network. Once a hacker starts talking to the voting machine through the modem, the hacker cannot just change these unofficial election results, they can hack the software in the voting machine and make it cheat in future elections.”
