PENNSYLVANIA VOTER ROLL CONTAINS 800,000 INACTIVE VOTERS

PA has a disturbing number of apparent inactive voters on their role leaving the state open to electoral fraud.

In April 2020 Judicial Watch sued the state of Pennsylvania for having more than 800K inactive voter registrations on the books despite the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) order that mandate states periodically clean their voter rolls.

Pennsylvania has an “abnormally high percentage” of voter registrations compared to their eligible voting population. This is an indicator that “the jurisdiction is not taking steps required by law to cancel the registrations of ineligible registrants.”

ALLEGHENY COUNTY LAWSUIT CLAIM NEARLY 1,600 DEAD ON VOTER ROLLS

Voter rolls containing dead people leave the state open to abuse.

Public Interest Legal Foundation lawsuit against Allegheny County in February 2020 claims that there are nearly 1,600 dead people on the county’s voter rolls, close to 7,500 voter registrations that have been flagged as duplicates, and 1,523 registered voters who claim to be 100 years old and over. On May 19 2020, Allegheny County officials admitted that duplicate ballots were mailed out to registered voters.

PENNSYLVANIA VOTER REGISTER EASY TO HACK

A competent hacker can easily access PA voter portal and change details such as address and party affiliation of a voter.

To access the PA information portal voters need to provide their last name, first name, address and date of birth or PA driver's license or PennDOT ID card number and date of birth. This information can be obtained from several open sources. The Pennsylvania voter database is available to obtain from the state, leaks, data brokers, hacking forums and darknet markets.

If accessed illegally you can check an individual’s party affiliation, the voting districts for the upcoming election and the Polling place address. A hacker could then modify a voter’s information to access the online registration and change details. A hacker only needs the first name, last name, date of birth, address, driver license or PennDOT ID card number or the 4 last digits of the Social Security Number. All this information can be obtained by hacker from data leaks.

PENNSYLVANIA VOTING MACHINE ISSUES NOVEMBER 2019

40% of polling locations in Philadelphia complained of voter machine issues.

Poll workers and technicians reported issues with the new ExpressVote XL machines at more than 40% of polling locations in Philadelphia during November 2019 election with some machines incorrectly recorded votes in Northampton county. Problems with at least 366 ExpressVote XL machines also occurred in Philadelphia. Reuters reviewed records of 605 phone calls from Philadelphia poll workers who reported problems.

PENNSYLVANIA VOTING MACHINE BARCODES HACKABLE

Other states have outlawed the use of barcodes for their vulnerability to a hack.

PA’s ExpressVote XL uses barcodes to tally individual ballots after they’re cast. Some election security experts in Pennsylvania raised concerns that ExpressVote XL machines are vulnerable to vote tampering, in part because voters have no way of knowing if those barcodes accurately reflect the candidates for whom they voted. It is possible for a hacker to change the barcode so it has a different list of candidate names and while people can’t read that barcode, it’s the only thing the machine reads to tally the votes.

ES&S CONCEALED PAYMENTS TO PHILADELPHIA COMMISSIONERS WHO AWARDED $29M CONTRACT

Despite found influencing the voter machine bidding process ES&S remains in place.

On February 20 2019, City Commissioners Al Schmidt and Lisa Deeley, voted to select ES&S’s Express XL voting machines as the recipient of the City’s voting machine contract and KNOWiNK as the recipient of the City’s electronic poll book contract. The two officials had the final say in awarding the $29 million contract to ES&S.

ES&S did not disclose its use of lobbyists, the lobbyists’ activities or the lobbyists’ campaign contributions in its bid to win the contract for the purchase of new voting machines. Specifically, ES&S did not disclose that its lobbying firms, Duane Morris and Triad Strategies, made campaign contributions in 2017 and 2018 to Commissioners Schmidt and Deeley.

Schmidt and Deeley signed Confidentiality and Conflict of Interest forms for the voting technology procurement process, agreeing to not “take official action, including but not limited to participation in the proposal review and selection process, that impacts [his] financial interests”. They awarded ES&S disregarding advocates recommendations and despite ES&S scoring lower than Tenex.

As a result of the investigation’s disclosure finding, ES&S agreed to a nearly $2.9 million penalty. Despite this the PA Board of Elections voted on August 15 to keep its current contract for new voting machines with ES&S.

PENNSYLVANIAS VOTING SYSTEMS ARE EXTREMELY VULNERABLE TO ATTACK

Voting machine software should be up to date to avoid security risks.

Pennsylvania´s current voting equipment is from Dominion, ES&S, Unisyn, ClearBallot, ClearVote and Hart Verify Voting. All these voting systems are EAC certified but some of them are using discontinued or highly vulnerable software.

ES&S EVS 6021 is using long discontinued Microsoft software, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 leaving it highly vulnerable to attack. Unisyn are using an extremely poor and discontinued software in all of their components (the web server, the database, the reporting software, the SSL protocol to secure communications, Java, Android operating system) affecting the security and stability of the entire system.

Although ClearVote is using Windows 10, the version used (named 1607) reached EOL in April. The language of the program, in which the program is written, Python 2.7, arrived at its EOL in January 2020. This means that there are no security updates and patches for bugs or malfunctioning of the software.

PHILADELPHIA VOTING MACHINE INTEGRITY IN THE HANDS OF A MUSICIAN AND OTHER RANDOM VENDORS

The transporting of voting machines should be conducted by experienced professionals to maintain integrity.

The fiscal 2020 operating budget for the city of commissioners lists vendors in running elections for 2020. These vendors are Electec, Inc for election software services, Always Moving, Barton & Cooney for printing, Windstream for telecommunications, Instant Copy for graphic media, and the US postal service.

Always Moving is a company used to move and haul voting machines across Philadelphia. The company consists of 2-10 employees and uses a contact email address with a domain name, pepsoul.com, connected to music producer Kam Houff.

Electec, Inc provides the voting machines, software, and technical support for elections in Philadelphia. An increase in mail-in ballots caused a delay in votes being counted for the primary election. Electec offers a service for voters to download their ballot online and then mail the ballot in, Electec will then scan the ballot to make it an official document.

FBI INVESTIGATING FORMER PHILADELPHIA JUDGE WHO ILLEGALLY ADDED VOTES TO DEMOCRATS

A concerning prosecution of money for votes in Philadelphia.

On May 21 2020, the DOJ announced charges against former Judge of Elections in Philadelphia Domenick DeMuro. DeMuro admitted that he accepted bribes from an unnamed political consultant that gave directions and paid him money to illegally add votes in favor of certain Democratic candidates from 2014-2016. According to investigations and campaign finance data, the “unnamed consultant” who paid DeMuro to inflate vote totals in favor of Democratic candidates is former U.S. Rep. Michael “Ozzie” Myers.

PHILADELPHIA CITY COMMISSIONERS SEND OUT A VOTESWAGON TO COLLECT THOUSANDS OF BALLOTS

The use of a voteswagon leaves ballots open to abuse.

On May 30 2020, after an agreement between the apparently non-partisan group, Committee of Seventy, and the City Commissioners of Philadelphia, a voteswagon was driven around the city to collect mail-in ballots.

In Pennsylvania there is no early voting and mail-in ballots were enabled in 2019 after passing Act 77. State law bans all types of ballot harvesting except for absentee ballots that can be harvested by a designated authorized representative of the voter, who due to illness or business reasons can’t deliver and return his/her absentee ballot by himself.
