Voter Booth (In)Security
On October 12, 2016, we asked you how secure you thought voter booths were. A study at the time showed 95% of IT Pros expressing concern over voter booth security.
As of today, 447 individuals completed the poll posted below. The current statistics have shown 79% of individuals question the security of voter booths, and believe enhancements need to be made. Thirteen percent of those polled believe the booths are “somewhat” secure. Meanwhile, 8% feel confident in the security of the voter booth system.
I don’t find these results surprising in the least. Over 90% of those who took place in the poll had some concerns over voter booth security. With the recent leaks of voter registrations in various states, there are certainly concern looming over the validity of the upcoming election results. What are your thoughts?
