David Cross spoke to TheWashington Post for an article covering the case against the state of Georgia regarding its faulty electronic voting machines, where a pending decision could upend how the state runs November’s election.
The Georgia voters who brought the case say that new software created at the last minute could create hacking vulnerabilities, and argue that there’s not enough time to test for other bugs that could make the machines malfunction during voting. They’re asking the judge to replace the machines with hand-marked paper ballots, which experts say are the most secure option.
“Having an election that, at the end of the day, everyone can say this was the safest, most reliable option – that should be what we all want,” said David, who is representing the voters. “Not going into an election with entirely new software that was written over a weekend.”
