Vulnerability of Voting Machines by Dr. Roger Johnston (X)

Illinois Institute of Technology Auditorium, 201 East Loop Road, Wheaton, IL

Friday, March 25, 7 p.m. - 9 p.m

Vulnerability of Voting Machines will be discussed by Dr. Roger Johnston, head of the Vulnerability Assessment Team at Argonne National Laboratory. Sponsored by Illinois Ballot Integrity Project/DuPage Chapter. Public welcome. Free admission. Donation optional.

In a test, Dr. Johnston demonstrated how his team wirelessly and remotely hacked into a voting machine and changed the vote without detection.

In a NBC interview, Dr. Johnston said, "It's much easier to steal the election, right at the electronic voting machine. In many cases, we see security devices or electronic voting machines where we really have to wonder, 'Did anybody spend 60 seconds figuring out the security issues?'"
