The New York Times published an interactive piece on election security today that included a video featuring Verified Voting fellow, Alex Halderman. The piece was the result of a months-long collaboration between Verified Voting and the New York Times.
“Alex Halderman, along with the New York Times, successfully demonstrated how vulnerable these voting machines can be,” said Marian K. Schneider, president of Verified Voting. “We want people to understand in a visual way how something like this might happen. Although it is only a risk and not a certainty that something like this could occur, we need to be prepared and able to recover. These machines don’t allow us to do that. It’s time we prepare to monitor, detect, respond and recover from any potential attacks that undermine our democracy.”
