"Waiting To Be Hacked" Voting Machines Dropped Off - Left Sitting - Unsecured

Waiting to be hacked

Voting materials and machines dropped off and left sitting, unsecured in polling place on Wednesday

Tomorrow, my school will be used as a polling place for Washoe County, Nevada. As I was leaving school today, I happened to walk through our main gathering area which we call The Forum. The space is used for a cafeteria, assemblies, plays, and, tomorrow it will be a poll. The outside doors open directly onto this space and there is no way to secure it or lock it off from anyone entering the building.

Imagine my surprise when I came across this sight. Three large stacks of voting machines and the other equipment necessary to run them. Totally unattended and not secured in any way. Upon asking around, I found they had been delivered earlier in the day and were waiting for the poll workers to come and set them up. The Forum is a busy place and adults and kids were constantly passing these machines all day. Another teacher happens to be passing by and I ask her opinion. We both agree that this is not an ok situation. I get out my cell phone and take some pictures for the record.
