At today’s hearing of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Prof. Alex Halderman gave a recipe for enhancing the security of our computerized voting systems:

Step 1: Replace DRE touchscreen systems with paper ballots and optical scanners.

Step 2: Use risk-limiting post-election audits to verify election results.

Step 3: Adopt best Cybersecurity practices and technologies appropriate to the threat.

My name is Larry Vaughn. You last saw me In 1975 in Amity, New York. I was the town's mayor when a rogue sheriff tried to frighten 4th of July tourists with talk of a great white shark lurking off the shallow waters. Needless to say, I was not pleased with the panic that ensued. "No danger!" I said. "Fun in the water!" Then the shark started gobbling people up. I now regret that I did not do more to protect the people who trusted me, and I want to make sure the same thing does not happen to the voters of Georgia. There are sharks lurking offshore (in Russia, for example) who want to hack your votes. Like me your elected leaders are quick to shout "No danger!"
