VOTING MACHINES ARE NOT EAC CERTIFIED AND OVER 10 YEARS OLD

Voting machines are using outdated operating systems or are no longer manufactured.

A majority of IL voting machines were purchased in 2002 using HAVA funds and not certified by the Election Assistance Committee. The IL approved voting systems are manufactured by Dominion, ES&S, Hart Intercivic, and Unisyn Voting Solutions. The only voting system still certified by the EAC is from Unisyn. Dominion withdrew from the EAC program in 2013 and still using Windows XP as its operating system, the ES&S system is no longer manufactured or sold by ES&S, and the Hart Intercivic system is only sold as a used system.

ILLINOIS ALLOWS VOTING MACHINES CONNECT TO INTERNET

Voting equipment connected to the Internet is at risk of being hacked

Voting machines provided by ES&S can connect to the Internet using a Verizon 4G modem. IL election official Matt Dietrich claims that cellular-enabled voting machines only transmit unofficial results. In 2016, Russian hackers were able to get into a voting database connected to the Internet and view the personal information of 76,000 voters.
