20 States Voter Registration Systems Experience Hacking Activities

Several states suspect voter registration systems were hacked after suspicious scanning activity…

Not long ago, the government encouraged stated to strengthen their security over voting, but is it too late?

New York Daily News reported 20 different states were flagged with a variety of “scanning activities” which makes the FBI question if they were attempts to hack the voter registration systems.

Earlier this year, Arizona and Illinois experienced hacks of their election systems, leaving over 200,000 files exposed.  It was then, that the FBI encouraged states to strengthen their cyber security measures.  Unfortunately, those warnings may have been ignored.

With the most recent revelation of voter registrations being hacked in 20 different states, it begs the question – When will information technology be taken seriously?  Previous reports have shared how difficult it would be to hack the election system.  And we discussed the advanced levels it would take to successfully hack the election, without detection in a previous post.  However, that doesn’t mean it can’t be done.

When will our government not only urge, but require a higher level of security for the information of not only our citizens, but the data that decides our next president?

    • Quoting: “We need voter ID. We need to go back to paper ballots. And we need to dip a finger in purple ink after we vote.” We have a national voters ID already – State ID or Drivers Licence thank you George W. Bush” “the “common machine-readable technology” required by the REAL ID Act

      would convert state-issued driver licenses and identification cards into tracking devices,

      allowing computers to note and record people’s whereabouts each time they are identified”
      “the requirement that states maintain databases of information about their citizens and residents and then share this personal information with all other states will expose every state to the information security weaknesses of every other state and threaten the privacy of every American”

  1. Government is totally corrupt and controlled by Hillary and Obama. The democratic party is trying to destroy the america we love and the Clinton crime family along with Obama and George Soros are the ones that are doing it! The director of the FBI, the DOJ and attorney general Loretta Lynch are all in it together. The only hope for the citizens of our country is to elect Donald Trump as President, if we want to stop all this corruption and start to make america the great nation it used to be before all the corruption. We have one chance and only one, make the right choice.

  2. I wish someone would explain to me exactly what “suspicious scanning” activity actually means.
    To me, “scanning” (looking for data) is a mere prelude to actual “hacking” (getting some data.) As I understand it, simply to be online means getting “scanned”—by every unsavory element out there; but your firewall, anti-malware and antivirus (hopefully) stops it before it does any damage. As for all the “crooked Hillary” stuff, get a life!

  3. The Democrats have been stealing elections for years, nothing new here. It’s just a new approach and a new avenue for cheating.

  4. “It was then, that the FBI encouraged states to strengthen their cyber security measures. Unfortunately, those warnings may have been ignored.”

    Here in Illinois, that’s not a bug, but a feature!

  5. Hillary is above the law, it doesn’t apply to her. Didn’t you know?
    That is why she is called crocked Hillary for a very good reason, including the democratic party.

  6. I see the main problem being, that even the Paper and pen method would need the info from an IT Professional controlling the Confuser!

  7. I have voted in all Nevada Elections for a few years at this address, but just received a letter in mail box saying no one at my mailing address was registered to vote. Maybe Nevada has been hacked and I have mysteriously changed my voting address?

  8. It’s “peasants” , not “pheasants”. Although we ARE being plucked and stuffed like pheasants….Technology can be kind, and it can also kill (in many different ways) I’ll still vote.

  9. It is so obvious that at least the last two presidential elections were rigged so why would this one be any different. It’s a shame and soon we will have no say in the matter. CRookS!

  10. This is no surprise. Voter fraud has been going on for awhile. As long as we have the current administration and the likes of the future their will be NO investigation into the matter. Criminal activity will be excepted and only apply’s to us pheasants.

  11. I see all is going as planned to yet another faux election result..

    Every time that woman or her cohort have run for office, it is amazing the reports of broken voting machines, districts not working, etc. I never hear that any other time in our state.

    That was before they made it easier to hack- less risk of discovery. *rolls eyes*

  12. Well, only 37 more states to go according to Obama!! Rest Free the FBI is hot on the trail. I hear the Mickey Mouse theme playing in the background. He is here to save the day!!

  13. To hell with techno-tinkering.
    The ability to hack voter registration system heralds the end of democracy itself. Voting is too serious a matter to allow for anything other than old-fashioned paper and ink. Add to that, that a vote without a paper receipt is always questionable.
