IMPORTANT QUESTION: Is the possibility of Russia tampering with the midterm elections freaking you out?

It should be freaking you out.

It’s a real possibility.

Read on.

(Thread)
I feel the need to point out (again) that our voting system is vulnerable to attack.  Citizens of 13 states will be voting in the midterms on insecure, obsolete, hackable, paperless voting machines that cannot be recounted.
Here’s an excellent 5 minute video called, "I Hacked an Election.  So Can the Russians.” It shows how you can REMOTELY rig a paperless Diebold voting machine.  These are the same machines that will be used by all Georgian voters in the 2018 midterms.
What makes this frustrating is that we know how to make our voting system resilient against all attacks. We need a) paper ballots everywhere, b) secure chain of custody of those ballots c) Risk Limiting Audits (RLAs)
There is a bipartisan bill called the Secure Elections Act that has been introduced in the Senate that would address the insecurity of our elections. thehill.com/policy/cyberse…
LISTEN TO ME...there is nothing that can stop Russia from hacking our elections again. Russia is an existential threat that we ignore at our peril.
