Just How Secure Are the 2020 Elections? When one hears about the latest trends in using and abusing data that flow online or over cell phone signal paths, one realizes that the best efforts to prevent disrupting the 2020 voting process or corrupting its reported results are akin to a cat-and-mouse game, where the best that defenders are doing is putting up spyware and walls to protect porous ancient systems.

Does Maryland have the answer for verifying America's vote count? here are advances that can make the process more transparent and verifiable before the winners are officially declared. Critics may assert that nothing involving computers can be trusted in voting. But they overlook that remarkably granular and accounting-like methods to verify vote counts have emerged practices that, if encouraged and widely adopted, would only benefit the public, but could be in place for 2020's election.

Could This Be the End of the Electoral College?

Why election officials are pinning their hopes on different vote-verifying technologies In early December, the county officials running Florida's elections unanimously endorsed a new way to recount ballots and more precisely verify votes before winners are certified.

"They're Throwing A Fit": The GOP's Desperate Power Grabs Show How Weak The Party Has Become The GOP is a party with a strong streak not only of reluctance to relinquishing power or heeding vote outcomes, but also of seeing it as politically virtuous to do whatever it takes to preserve its power. The biggest example of this reflex is its ongoing packing of the federal courts, which began in President Obama's final years, when the GOP-led Senate refused to seat scores of appointees and a Supreme Court justice.

The Blue Wave Is Real, and Republicans Are Reeling There were signs that Democrats were making inroads in previously red states. In Kansas, the anti-immigrant and vote-suppressing Secretary of State, Kris Kobach, was defeated for governor by Laura Kelly, and Kansans also elected Democrat Sharice Davids, a Native American and gay woman, to the House. Davids was one of many women elected on Tuesday, from governors to House members.

Here's How the Country Could Actually Secure Our Elections If Politicians Actually Cared to Try Whether the most confidence-inspiring technologies will be built into the ways America verifies the vote is no longer a theoretical question.
