One of the nation’s largest voting machine manufacturers Election Systems and Software (ES&S) allegedly sent a 27-page brief to a reporter that revealed the company has the ability to log in to their machines to make major system changes.

In a report from Creative Destruction Media, writer Chris Gleason details how he recently requested ES&S’s “Audit Logs” and “Election Records” following a ruling by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton requiring election administrators to provide these data when requested. Gleason was told that ES&S was not going to send the data as it would be a violation of United States Copyright Law.

Gleason challenged this claim citing a “Fair Use” exemption, and was told the manuals requested by him and his team contained default administrator logins and passwords. (LEARN MORE: GOP Targets Chinese Military Aggression With New Bill)

Why Is This A Big Deal?

“This stunning admission by ES&S to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is an admission that ES&S knowingly and willingly violated every cybersecurity protocol and best practice in place today. This is an admission that ES&S has not followed NIST guidelines nor CISA guidelines for electronic systems and software deemed to be ‘Critical Infrastructure,'” Gleason argued. “This admission by ES&S certainly does explain why they do not want anyone inspecting the ‘Machine Configuration Reports,’ ‘Audit Logs’ and ‘Error Logs.’ It certainly appears that ES&S’ idea of security best practices is security by obscurity.”

Gleason noted that the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NINST) gives companies like ES&S detailed guides on how to manage login and password information, as well as other detailed measures within cybersecurity.

“Listing system logins and passwords directly in operator manuals would likely be considered a violation of NIST’s cybersecurity standards and best practices. Such an approach would compromise password confidentiality, expose critical systems to potential unauthorized access, and undermine the overall security posture recommended by NIST,” Gleason noted.

Critical Questions Need To Be Asked

There are myriad issues that could easily stem from any potential breach of ES&S’ responsibility to free and fair elections. But it is the responsibility of your leaders to ensure your right to democracy and guarantee your vote goes where you intend it.

You can lobby your local, state, and federally elected officials to pursue the freedom of our elections today. “Any voting system connected to the internet via a modem or network device should not be used to administer elections. We know that they are. ES&S openly admitted that their systems were,” Gleason added. This is a major concern and questions need to be asked to determine just how far these issues really go.

Did you know that you, your family, and friends can send letters directly to your elected officials today? We can tell your leaders what you want from their time in office, and what you expect from our federal government. Letter-writing campaigns, or even just a single letter, can be enough to sway policy and prompt investigations.
