New federal guidelines have been issued in order for all voting machines to be updated with new security features ahead of the 2024 election. Guess how many states are going to fail to update their systems in time for the election?
Zero. Not a single one.
All of the current machines that are certified under the current standard, which is “deprecated,” will still be used in the 2024 election anyway.
The National Association of State Election Directors (NASED) is worried that “conspiracy theorists” will spread “misinformation” about the voting machines being unsecured once the word gets out. The new guidelines come out in November, but NASED admits that not a single state will have its machines set up to be properly certified for next year. This is outrageous.
NASED stated in a letter to the US Election Assistance Commission and made this demand:
“The [federal government] must be unambiguous: voting systems certified to the [old standard] will remain federally certified after November 15th, 2023, and jurisdictions can continue using and purchasing those systems consistent with state or territorial laws and regulations.”
In other words, NASED is saying that not a single voting machine in any state in the country will be certified—so the Biden administration that was installed in a coup fomented by these shoddy machines should ignore that and let them use the machines under the old standard. Gee, we wonder how Joe Biden will respond to that idea.
As we reported last week, the damning Halderman Report in the Curling v. Raffensperger case out of Georgia, two computer science PhDs found that every single Dominion Voting Systems machine in the entire state is compromised. The report showed that all Dominion machines can be exploited to subvert all of their security measures. The machines can also be used to change the votes of individual Georgia voters.
Halderman wrote, “An attacker with brief access to a single ICX or a single Poll Worker Card and PIN can obtain the county-wide [cryptographic] keys.”
He warns that “[A] dishonest election worker… with just brief access to the scanner’s memory card could violate ballot secrecy and determine how individual voters voted.”
And the report kept getting worse after that. “Malware can still change individual votes and most election outcomes without detection.”
Yes, absolutely. Halderman also states that it would be impossible to tell if the votes had been tampered with. “Such cheating could not be detected by [a risk limiting audit] or a hand count.”
In the conclusion to Halderman’s report, he states that Georgia voters have no reason to have any confidence in the outcomes of their elections. The Dominion machines are mandated by the Georgia state legislature to be used as the primary method of voting in the whole state.
There is supposedly a security patch from Dominion that would correct these issues, but Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced that he just won’t have time to update the machines before 2024. The Dominion machines are used in 24 states total, and the ICX ballot scanners mentioned (which are also made by Dominion) are used in 16 states. None of them are secure. All of them have the same security vulnerabilities, which is what the Pillow Guy Mike Lindell has been trying to tell the world ever since the 2020 election was stolen.
Even many of the states that require hand-marked paper ballots still use some form of electronic scanner to count the votes, rather than relying on the more trustworthy system of hand counting with observers from both political parties present. All of the machines are officially compromised, and they’re not even trying to hide it at this point.
But we are the ones branded as “insurrectionists” and “conspiracy theorists” for questioning the election results. No one in the federal government, including Republican Senators and Representatives, seems even slightly interested in ditching these ridiculous machines in favor of paper ballots.
I don’t understand Republican voters in Georgia at this point. Why aren’t you guys marching to your legislature with torches and pitchforks right now, demanding that the machines be sent to the scrap heap? Your elections are being stolen, and Raffensperger knows it. Yet he still refuses to do anything about it.
