ARIZONA VOTER INFORMATION PORTAL IS HACKABLE

A weak authentication system leaves Arizona voter addresses and party affiliations at risk of being altered by hackers.

The Arizona Voter Information Portal is managed by the Arizona Secretary of State. The application allows voters to search for their voter registration information, find their polling location, request a Ballot-by-Email, verify ballot-by-mail-status, verify provisional ballot status, submit a public record request, submit a petition request and respond to notice. To use the Voter Information Portal, voters only need their last name, date of birth, Arizona Driver License or Identification Card, or their voter identification number. That information can be obtained from open sources or dark web data breaches. It is possible to access the portal and verify the voter registration information of any Arizona voter found in data breaches.

ARIZONA’S 2020 CANDIDATE NOMINATION PETITION WAS HACKABLE

The Arizona candidate nomination process in 2020 was open to cheating.

In Arizona, candidates are required to obtain a minimum number of petition signatures to appear on a ballot. Voters interested in assisting Statewide and Legislative candidates can now sign a petition electronically with E-Qual. Elections candidates are required to obtain $5 qualifying contributions from registered voters to qualify for public funding. Using information obtained through a data breach, it is possible to access the E-Qual system using personal information of an Arizona voter. It was possible to sign for a candidate nomination and donate money illegally.

ARIZONA VOTING MACHINES SOFTWARE IS OUT OF DATE

It is essential software is kept up to date or it becomes open to attack from a hacker.

Arizona’s Current voting equipment is EAC certified but ElectionWare 6.0.4.0 and ElectionWare 5.2.0.0 of ES&S is still using end of life operating systems, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, easily hackable, without security patches. The Equipment Certification Advisory Committee meeting of august 15, 2019 was not concerned about the out of date operating systems and Dr. Jim Helm, IT Program Chair in Arizona State University said he was less concerned regarding the transition from Windows 7 to version 10 and more concerned regarding server upgrades. Ms. Paulson-Parmer, State Certification Manager ES&S, stated that the server updates may not be as relevant due to the equipment not being connected to the internet. After that meeting, the upgrading of the Windows 7 and servers was not discussed, at least publicly.
