VOTER ID REQUIRMENTS WEAK IN FLORIDA

Signature only requirements for non-first-time voters is open to abuse.

Voting ID requirements for voting-by-mail are weak in Florida. Only first-time voters are required to present documentation proving their identity in order to complete voter registration and, when voting-by-mail, they must enclose a copy of such documentation with their ballot request or ballot. As for non-first-time voters, the only requirement when voting-by-mail is that the signature on their mail ballot matches their voter registration signature.

FLORIDA VOTER DATABASE VULNERABLE TO HACK

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

The Florida Voter Information Portal is an online application to check your voting status. To access the portal, voters need only their last name, first name and date of birth. The application allows voters to search for their voter registration information, find their polling location, request a ballot-by-email, request registration update and request change address update. It is possible to access the portal using the voter database provided by the Florida Government left on an ftp server in error.

FLORIDA DATABASE LEAKING VOTER INFORMATION

Personal voter information, including email addresses, are leaking online.

In Florida, anyone can request voter registration data, but to obtain the database you have to make an official request by using the voter registration data request form or by contacting one of their election offices. But the voter database is shared in an FTP server without authentication and open to anyone globally. This includes information that should not be disclosed such as personal email addresses.

FLORIDA VOTING SOFWARE IS NOT CERTIFIED, OUT OF DATE AND CONNECTS TO THE INTERNET

Florida’s voting machines are riddled with issues that leave them open to abuse.

Florida certified voting equipment is EVS 4.5.3 version 2 of ES&S and Democracy Suite release 14.37 of Dominion. Current voting equipment is not EAC certified. Both systems are using variations of EAC certified systems. ES&S EVS 4.5.3 doesn’t exist, they are using the version of one of the components of the package, ElectionWare. The most similar package in the EAC certified list is EVS 5.2.0. Dominion Democracy Suite Release 4.14.37 Version 2 is included in the packaged called 4.14-D.

ElectionWare 4.5.3 of ES&S and Democracy Suite 4.14.37 version 3 are still using end of life operating systems, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, easily hackable, without security patches for the latest vulnerabilities. The new ES&S version includes, among others, a new Verizonmodem 4G for DS200 precinct scanner and a new Cisco ASA5506x Firewall. Dominion Democracy Suite has modems since 2016. Because any internet connection exposes a system to potential cyberattack, the federal government never certified the modem-equipped machines for states to use. Modems were used in Florida in the 2016 and 2018 elections.

A team of election security experts on Aug 2019, said they discovered some voting systems online. They found over 35 voting systems had been left online. They said that they identified only one company among the systems they detected online, ES&S. The National Institute of Standards and Technology, which provides cybersecurity frameworks for state and local governments and other organizations, recommends that voting systems should not have wireless network connections. We also should be mindful that once an update to the voting machines have happened, are the re-certified?
