INSECURE METHOD TO CHECK VOTER’S REGISTRATION DETAILS

Voter’s home address and party affiliation exposed by weak system.

The registration checker requires a voter to fill its first and last name and date of birth. A bad actor could obtain voter’s residence address, party affiliation, voting location, voter ID and voter registration date.

EQUIPMENT CONNECTED TO THE WEB AND AT RISK OF BEING HACKED

Voting equipment connected to Internet have vulnerabilities.

Idaho uses E-poll books, they are electronic versions of the paper voter rolls. Despite other voting equipment, EPB within a poll location are connected through Bluetooth and all are connected to Wi-Fi to update voter status instantly thanks to a centralized server.

This voting equipment is particularly vulnerable as already detailed by independent lab SLI Compliance about Tenex poll books: “An attacker situated in the user's ISP or the application's hosting infrastructure could also perform this attack (eavesdropping)”, “an advanced adversary could potentially target any connection made over the Internet's core infrastructure”.

Idaho has certified four electronic poll books since 2016 (eLect p4.2.3; AskED v.3.4; ExpressPoll; and recently in 2019 Tenex’s Precinct Central e-poll book).

IDAHO USES OUTDATED VOTING SYSTEMS

Voting systems relying on outdated software are at risk of being hacked.

Idaho’s last voting system certification was ES&S EVS 5.2.2.0 in 2017. Both EVS 5.2.2.0 and Hart’s Intercivic Verity 2.0 use end of life systems (Windows 7, Microsoft Server 2008, Windows 7 Professional and Windows Embedded Standard 7) which are vulnerable to hacking as they no longer receive security patches.

GUILTY PLEA FOR IDAHO MAN VOTING IN TWO DIFFERENT STATES

Christopher Billups plead guilty to voting by mail in WA and then voting in person in ID.

In 2017 Billups voted twice; he returned a Washington state ballot by mail and then voted in person at Lapwai City Hall. His original charge was a Class C felony that was later reduced to a misdemeanor charge after a plea deal. He was sentenced to 364 days in jail and was ordered to pay $2,490 in fees, his jail sentence was later suspended, and he was given a year of probation.

VOTING SYSTEM LACKS FUNCTIONALITY AND REPORTS FALSE RESULTS

The voting system from Tenex given false reports for the second election in a row.

The state-run voter information interface designed by Tenex Software Solutions provides incorrect information when election workers try to upload local results. In the March presidential primary, an initial voter turnout figure showed a 933 percent participation rate in Nez Perce County. The same county had similar problems during the 2019 municipal elections last November.
