“In September 2016, ... James Comey told the House Judiciary Committee that it would be ‘very, very difficult’ for someone to hack into the US voting machine system because it’s so ‘clunky & dispersed’ & ‘those things aren’t connected to the internet.’” whowhatwhy.org/2019/03/19/per… 1/
2/ “In reality, however, ES&S and Dominion account for more than 80 percent of US election equipment, creating a centralized avenue of attack for corrupt insiders or hackers.”
3/ “Moreover, contrary to Comey’s suggestion, all hybrids, BMDs, voting machines, and scanners must receive programming before each election from centralized county or state computers called election management systems that can and do connect to the internet.”
4/ “These election management system computers also include the central tabulators, which aggregate all electronic vote tallies from the precincts.”
5/ “Those tallies are then sent from the central tabulators to online reporting systems with flash drives or USB sticks that, in some jurisdictions, go back and forth between the online system and the central tabulator throughout the night as results are uploaded.”
6/ “This creates yet another central target for hackers to wreak havoc on an election.”
