Pennsylvania county's voting machines decertified after audit

In a letter to the Fulton County Board of Elections on Tuesday, acting Pennsylvania Secretary of the Commonwealth Veronica Degraffenreid said the machines used during the November 2020 election were compromised as a result of the audit conducted by software company Wake TSI.

Fulton County officials previously told Degraffenreid that they allowed Wake TSI to access certain components of their election system, including their "election database, results files, and Windows system logs," the letter states.

The county also allowed the company to use a "system imaging tool to take complete hard drive images of these computers" and "complete images of two USB thumb drives" used to transfer election results.

Degraffenreid said the machines had been compromised as a result of the audit. She said neither the county, state officials, nor Dominion Voting Systems could "verify that the impacted components of Fulton County's leased voting system are safe to use in future elections."

**************************************************

I think before any other states agree to these fraudits, they should get the money (to replace the voting equipment ) up-front from those making the demand for these partisan reviews.

1. I agree with your last statement 100%.


There is no way they should trust these companies to not compromise the voting equipment in some way to impact a future election.

And the taxpayers of the state should not be on the hook to have to pay for new equipment as a result of these bullshit "fraudits".

2. So now everyone agrees, voting machines can be compromised by bad actors?

The safe way is transparent publicly hand counted paper ballots

11. It needs to be 100 percent

And what good do they do if they are not actually hand counted?

In Florida it is illegal to hand count the paper ballots, recounts just mean running them through the same machines

12. It was 100% in the states that were close

But the guy responsible for getting it to 95% (from 82% in 2016) was fired by the guy who hired him. Go figure.

17. Good process has a post-election accuracy audit

A few precincts will be chosen randomly after the audit and compared against a hand count. If the counts are significantly different, all ballots get hand counted (and the machines are decertified).

19. Many years ago they did the "humbolt county transparency project "

Every ballot was run through a scanner, posted online so anyone could see them, count them, compare them to the posted results

Turned out a whole batch of absentee ballots never were added to the “official “ total

The process you describe would of missed that

I would like at least the top two federal races to be hand counted paper ballots on election night

Bradblog is a great source for all things election related

3. I read that it will cost Arizona $3 million to replace equipment ruined by the Cyber Ninjas

Sounds like Pennsylvania is going to get similarly stuck just to find out that their election was free, fair, and transparent, just like they'd set it up to be. I hope none of the taxpayers in Arizona or Pennsylvania are going to get all shirty about this.

4. Fulton County is a very small county on the Mason-Dixon Line

and in the mountains. The entire population is just over 14,000. I doubt there was anything nefarious about the audit, just county officials not especially informed about do's and don'ts.

8. So, you're saying that the audit was not part of the big lie that Trump won? That's what you doubt?

Because that's why the audit was conducted.
to find the alleged fraud that Joe Biden did to "steal the election."
Their motivations are tainted by their actions.
But go ahead and make some excuses for and side with the republicans on this.
You do you.

16. Fulton County is one of the most red counties in the entire state

Trump won it 86-14, 6+k votes to 1+k Biden votes. The down ballot contests were just as lopsided.

20. Counties in Pennsylvania did audits, not just Fulton

This was well before all the non-sense in AZ. The election officials in Fulton most likely didn't know exactly what they were doing.

If you chose to believe otherwise, fine.
