AMBIGUITY IN ELECTIONS CODE YEILDS TO NO VOTER FRAUD CHARGES

TN elections code prevents charges if a Democrat votes in a Republican primary and vice-versa

The Williamson County Election Commission alleged voter fraud was committed by county commission candidate Anne McGraw and House District 63 candidate Bill Peach. In 2018, they voted in the Republican primary in May only to later appear on the August ballot as Democrats. District Attorney Kent Chitwood wrote that there could be no criminal prosecution because Tennessee law does not clarify how to define a bona fide Republican or Democrat. This lack of distinction makes it hard for voters to know if they are committing a crime.

TENNESSEE VOTING MACHINES ARE OLD, CONTAIN BUGS AND ARE AT RISK OF BEING HACKED

It is essential equipment is kept up to date or it becomes open to attack from a hack

Tennessee’s Counties are currently upgrading their voting equipment. However, many Counties are still using the same voting machines purchased over 14 years ago- Hart InterCivic eSlate and MicroVote Infinity voting machines. eSlate machines are not certified by federal EAC as they aren’t part of the new Hart InterCivic Verity Voting Systems, they use outdated software (Windows 2000 or Windows 7) which is insecure as it’s no longer supported by Microsoft and has been reporting vulnerabilities for years.

TN VOTING MACHINES DON’T PRODUCE AUDITABLE RECORDS

75% of TN Counties lack a Voter-verified paper audit trail

Most counties in Tennessee currently use direct-recording electronic machines (DREs) without a voter-verified paper audit trail (VVPAT). According to TN Secretary of State’s office spokeswoman Julia Bruck, 24 (out of 95) Counties will be using voting equipment that produces VVPAT in the November General Election. Without VVPAT, voters can’t verify their choices before they cast them, and it would be much more difficult to detect election fraud or malfunctioning of the voting systems.
