As the midterm elections in November approach, the attention is on voting protocols and instruments, particularly voting machines.
Many abnormalities in voting were observed around the nation following the 2020 presidential election, some of which were attributable to mail-in ballots, voting rosters, poll workers, and hacked or hijacked voting equipment.
GPB News states:
“Sensitive voting system passwords posted online. copies of confidential voting software are available for download. Ballot counting machines inspected by people not supposed to have access.
The list of suspected security breaches at local election offices since the 2020 election keeps growing, with investigations underway in at least three states – Colorado, Georgia, and Michigan.”
The report continues:
“Election security experts say the breaches by themselves have not necessarily increased threats to the November voting. Election officials already assume hostile foreign governments might have sensitive data, and so they take precautions to protect their voting systems.
Of course, the 2020 election is under fire from some conservative Republicans who say the numbers don’t add up for Joe Biden to have defeated Donald Trump.
Trump and his supporters have made claims about certain voting machines after he lost his bid for reelection. Authorities have said there was no evidence of widespread problems with voting equipment.
Both Republicans and Democrats have been accusing each other of voter fraud, and new accusations in Georgia are following old.
Recently in Fulton County, Georgia, election officials in the state’s most populous county in and around Atlanta, said Friday that they had fired a worker after learning that “personally identifiable information was shared with an individual outside the organization,” news outlets reported.
“The individual responsible for the incident no longer works with Fulton County,” the county said in a news release. “Fulton County is committed to the safety and security of all citizens and employees. Each individual affected by this incident will be notified and will receive credit monitoring services.”

In another instance that is resulting in a lawsuit, Fulton County Georgia, it seems security video appears to show Cathy Latham introducing members of a computer forensic team to local election officials. Latham was the county Republican Party chair at the time. The computer forensics team was at the county elections office in Douglas, Ga., to make copies of voting equipment in an effort that documents show was arranged by Sidney Powell and other Republicans.
Georgia is connecting these actions to Donald Trump, as the Republicans shown in the video footage are Trump voters. CONTINUE READING…
