Fresh Air's Terry Gross interviews cybersecurity reporter Kim Zetter. She warns that our election systems, including our voting machines, are vulnerable to hacking: "We can't rule out that elections haven't already been manipulated."
U.S. is that elections are notoriously underfunded. And in most cases, it does come down to a couple of people in a local election office, maybe supplemented during, you know, the high election season with outside workers that they bring in - hopefully, in some cases, with IT people that have a security background. In most cases, that's not the circumstance, though.
And so elections in some places are run by the people you want them to be run by. But in many places, they're run by people we just - we don't even know who they are.
