Stunning testimony: Voting machines can
be hacked without a trace of evidence

Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 9/12/2017 10:37:06 PM

The country’s voting machines are susceptible to hacking, which could be done in a way so that it leaves no fingerprints, making it impossible to know whether the outcome was changed, computer experts told President Trump’s voter integrity commission Tuesday. The testimony marked a departure for the commission, which was formed to look into fraud and barriers to voting, but which heard that a potentially greater threat to confidence in American elections is the chance for enemy actors to meddle. “There’s no perfect security; there’s only degrees of insecurity,” said Ronald Rivest, a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

I do not trust these electronic voting machines. The electronic galley is ok but there needs to be paper vote validation for auditing purposes.

If it ain´t connected to the internet, it can´t be hacked unless you allow someone with a computer to come into the polling place and connect cables to your voting machine.

I believe that I have read that voting machines are not internet connected during voting.

Sorry, I don´t believe these "experts". Just because there could be a way that a machine could be compromised doesn´t mean that it would be easy to do or possible to do on a broad scale.

For example, the comment that "Maybe the Wi-Fi was turned on" would require that a machine would have to be configured incorrectly, that someone could find THAT machine out of thousands in the country, that such wifi access could be used to make vote count changes, and make changes that wouldn´t be a dead giveaway like adding 3000 votes to a candidate in a precinct that only has 1500 people.

This is like saying that a careless banker "might" leave the door of the bank unlocked. A thief would need to know that bank was unlocked. Then someone would also need to leave the vault unlocked as well. Sure, it "could" happen. And I could win Powerball too.

Tech experts love to flap their gums and show off. Then they can make a case to sell better security to a worried public. How hard is it to create a voting machine with NO Wi-Fi. To program it at setup, a hardwired ethernet connection would be required and it would be pretty difficult to "accidently" leave that connected while the machine was counting votes on election day. Only a moron would do it. Or simply make it IMPOSSIBLE for the network function to be on when the machine is in operation counting votes. Electronically shut off power to any ethernet connection when tallying votes.

Perhaps true, but unless done very cleverly, the voting pattern should make the fraud obvious.

Having been an election commissioner for over 13 years I feel compelled to comment.
My state has 75 Counties. Each County selects ballot position by lot. With 7 Presidential candidates this past election that means there could be X number( please help with the parmutations & comutations) of different sequences of candidates that would have to be hacked on an electronic voting machine that is not connected to the internet. The results are printed out on paper at each of my 20 polling sites. This data is transferred to a computer that has never been connected to the internet, the data is coallated and then transmitted to the State (ah the weak link). When they publish that data on the internet we compare it to the paper trail we have. Any discrepancy would be immediately discovered

Computer security can be hacked or the software manufactures can write the programs to be bias. We need to go back to paper ballets. I can wait a day or so longer to find out the results.

This isn´t a surprise. Just make the software so that it flips a certain percentage of votes as they are entered. The actual vote count would match the number of people that voted. If the voting machine is connected to the internet, It could download good software and replace the hacked software afterward and vice versa. Maybe it could be done in such a way that the voting machine wouldn´t even need to be rebooted. It would be like any software that is expected to be up and running 24x7x365.

We all here know that the real issue with election validity isn´t hacking, Russian or otherwise, but the untold number of people voting illegally or in multiple locations. And we also know which party fights against any reasonable laws (voter ID) aimed to curtail those shenanigans.

In my county (I´m an election judge) we use optical scan machines almost exclusively; paper ballots with results recorded on to a chip in the machine. After every election our county clerk takes at least one set of ballots and does a match up with the machine to make sure it is operating properly. All voted ballots are in sealed bags stored for a certain length of time in case of a recount. The only way to cheat requires shenanigans by the humans involved. No shenanigans at my polling place

#8 and #18:

Same here in Virginia. Neither the pollbook computers, where we check in the voters and record them having voted, nor the electronic ballot scanning machines are connected to the internet.

We do not use any electronic touch-screen voting machines. Our entire process has a paper trail that can be recounted/audited.

I´m not sure what type of machines the article references, but not the case here.

FTA: ´Maybe the Wi-Fi was turned on when it shouldn’t have been.’

Why would voting machines have WiFi? Doesn´t seem likely. If they did and it was off, how would you connect to it to turn it on?

Some new cars have internet capability, but cars and smart phones communicate with Bluetooth.

The whole premise is questionable. If hacked machines can´t be detected, how can we tell if it´s possible?

Nothing can be tampered with without leaving a trace. If something is changed, sooner or later, someone is going to notice. It´s like stealing furniture. Maybe an item or two goes missing and is not noticed at first, then a room full is gone, and someone is compelled to the conclusion that someone is stealing the furniture.

We need to go back to the punch cards. Simple, auditable, and with completely known error rates. The ballots can be re-run to increase the accuracy (run them through again to get -6dB less noise, thrice (4 total counts) for -12dB noise, 8 total for -18dB, limited by the durability of the cards).

But Democrats are too *stupid* to operate them. They´re too dumb to poke a hole in paper. That was the excuse in Florida 2000, and it´s why the whole country has these iffy machines that nobody can be certain about. Idiot Democrats will be the end of this nation.

RE #23: "Morticia, you spoke Decibels!"

More seriously, any all-electronic system sans a paper trail has the potential of being hacked without a trace. Electrons are ephemeral by nature. Fortunately, most voting machine manufacturers offer a paper trail option - at additional cost. As an election judge, I know that is the case with the machines in my precinct. Local election commissioners need to be convinced to spend the extra money.

For the geeks among us: cyclic redundancy check (CRC) would also "harden" the count, as opposed to simple checksums as used in my area.

But without a National ID, that only addresses the tip of the iceberg.

Even with our best efforts, Democrats in particular will find a way to cheat. Just check the Chicago river after any election.

When all else fails: purple dye. /s

If you want to read up on this, may I suggest ´blackboxvoting.org´.

IF....IF....IF what the ´blackboxvoting´ people are saying is correct, the computer system, at least the ones they are discussing, were DESIGNED to be MANIPULATED.

I agree with them that if the vote count allows DECIMALS.... not just Integer numbers, that is an ´indicator´ that things are not on the up-and-up.

My thought is that the system should be VISIBLE, with HARD COPIES, and COMPLETELY OPEN TO OBSERVATION BY ALL, AT ALL TIMES.

It´s been widely known, for years, in IT that electronic voting machines are absolutely (and demonstrated) insecure. Anyone with in the chain of custody of the machines can load the the election hack, which can hide itself before and remove all traces of itself after the election.

Elections must be done with voter marked paper ballots. Machine readable, sure - but hand-marked. But the entire election process needs to be secured. There are ways to ensure the security of the process without violating the sanctity of the voting booth. And why are the votes counted behind closed doors, removed from the public? Shouldn´t be that way. (And yes, I have spent some time thinking about this topic.)

A federal judge on Monday permanently blocked President Trump’s executive order to cut funding from so called “sanctuary cities.” Trump’s order would have removed some federal funds from cities that limit their cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick rejected the Trump administration’s argument that the measure only applies to a relatively small pool of money. Orrick also said that Trump cannot set fresh conditions on spending that Congress has previously approved. Monday’s ruling came in lawsuits brought by two California counties, Santa Clara and San Francisco.

Dozens of teachers have quit their jobs in Pennsylvania´s capital city amid a wave of violence from students as early as the first grade, it has emerged. The Harrisburg Education Association (HEA) said that at least 45 teachers resigned between July and October, and more have followed since. Those who remain are now demanding more help from administrators. ´I have been kicked, punched, hit, scratched. I´ve had a student physically restraining me in front of my other students,´ first-grade teacher Amanda Shaeffer told board members, according to Penn Live.

Over the last few days, I’ve had a number of conversations with both right- and left-leaning friends about the political futures of Al Franken and Roy Moore. Without equating the severity of the alleged offenses (Moore’s are obviously worse), I’ve been struck by the extent to which people across the political spectrum will tolerate misconduct in politicians that they’d never, ever tolerate in their own workplaces. In most functioning corporations, if there’s pictorial evidence that a senior executive groped a woman, then that executive is forced to resign. If there are known, credible allegations that an applicant for a senior

Rep. John Conyers, newly facing sexual misconduct charges from former aides, was praised by fellow Rep. Maxine Waters just last month as a champion of women. During an address to organizers of the national Women’s March in which she lashed out at “rape culture” and President Trump, she singled out the Michigan lawmaker for special attention. (Snip) “He is quiet, he is confident, he is powerful, but he has impeccable integrity on all of our issues. Give John Conyers a big round of applause.” C-SPAN captured her comments and those of others who spoke at the event. In her address she

A second federal judge has halted the Trump administration’s proposed transgender military ban, finding that active-duty service members are “already suffering harmful consequences” because of the president’s policy. The ruling Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Marvin J. Garbis in a Maryland case comes just weeks after another judge in Washington blocked the administration’s proposal that would have stopped military recruitment of transgender men and women and possibly forced the dismissal of current service members, starting in March. The preliminary injunction issued by the judge in Baltimore on Tuesday goes further than the

Donna Brazile said in an interview Tuesday that Russian hackers destroyed “critical data” when they breached the Democratic National Committee (DNC) ahead of the 2016 presidential election. Brazile, who served as interim DNC chair for a portion of last year, made the comments during an interview with Joe Madison on Sirius XM. (Snip) The DNC pushed back on Brazile´s comments, saying in a statement to The Hill, "Her allegation is inaccurate - there is no evidence the voter file was compromised." Brazile stepped in as chair of the DNC after Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) was forced to resign following

Michigan Rep. John Conyers, a Democrat and the longest-serving member of the House of Representatives, settled a wrongful dismissal complaint in 2015 with a former employee who alleged she was fired because she would not “succumb to [his] sexual advances.”Documents from the complaint obtained by BuzzFeed News include four signed affidavits, three of which are notarized, from former staff members who allege that Conyers, the ranking Democrat on the powerful House Judiciary Committee, repeatedly made sexual advances to female staff that included requests for sexual favors, contacting and transporting other women with whom they believed Conyers was having affairs, caressing
