"Voting systems in Wisconsin, a key swing state, can be hacked security experts warn." (BTW, Wisconsin also uses DS200 scanners with the cellular modem "upgrade"!) 1/ wisconsinwatch.org/2018/07/voting…
3/ Wisconsin's DS200 scanners, the ones w/ cellular modems, are from ES&S, which was recently exposed for selling election management systems w/ remote access software & refusing to reveal where exactly it did this. Here is something you can do!
4/ The article in post 1 notes that "municipal and county clerks … say they are not worried about a cyberattack, citing the fact that voting in WI is not centrally coordinated but conducted on a local level by 1,854 communities, large & small." Seems they forgot to mention...
6/ Those same "municipal and county clerks" also claimed that there's no cause for concern, reasoning that "the voting machines are not connected to the internet." Seems they forgot about those ES&S DS200 scanners...
7/ … with the cellular modems that Wisconsin authorized in 2015 (via @SwissTriple_M) See page 69: elections.wi.gov/sites/default/…
9/ As of 2016, at least three Wisconsin counties were discovered (by EI advocate John Brakey and others) to use ES&S DS200 scanners WITH cellular modems. Investigation was ongoing. whowhatwhy.org/2016/12/14/vot…
12/ Even if Wisconsin's DS200 scanners had NOT cellular modems, this would NOT (as the clerks interviewed in the article wrongly suggest) preclude vote tally manipulation via the internet!
13/ As explained by IT expert Andrew Appel (Princeton), both touchscreen voting machines & scanners must receive programming b4 each election from centralized election mgmt systems that connect to the internet!
14/ Meanwhile, Senator Ron Johnson (Wisconsin), who went to Russia this past July 4 and says we should overlook Russia’s election meddling, enjoyed one of the most surprising election wins of 2016 after Russia compromised his state’s election system ... medium.com/@jennycohn1/se…
