The butterfly effect on the election systems in Georgia
If you recall my articles on whowhatwhy.org last November on the state of Georgia's election systems, there's an exciting update:
"U.S. District Judge Amy Totenberg’s order on Thursday prohibits the state from using its antiquated paperless touchscreen machines and election management system beyond this year. She also said the state must be ready to use hand-marked paper ballots if its new system isn’t in place for the March 24 presidential primary election."
It's worth a reminder that Georgia's governor Brian Kemp, who barely won, refused to have the election systems which appeared to have many vulnerabilities, audited before the election -- because he was also the state's top election official at the time he was running.
The article also mentions my friend Harri Hursti, who is the person to go to if your government wants an election system audit.
