America's 2024 Voting Machines Won't Be Federally Certified.
Voting system guidelines will be updated on November 15th 2023, but few if any state election officials are updating their systems to meet them, with machines certified under the current "deprecated" standard remaining in use. "The [federal government] must be unambiguous: voting systems certified to the [old standard] will remain federally certified after November 15th, 2023, and jurisdictions can continue using and purchasing those systems consistent with state or territorial laws and regulations," the National Association of State Election Directors (NASED) have demanded in a letter to the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC). They fear skeptics of the machines will question the 2024 election due to machines only being certified to the old standard. Ph.D. scientists recently exposed a host of "critical vulnerabilities" in voting machines, but officials such as Brad Raffensperger, Georgia's Secretary of State, are refusing to address them in time for 2024, telling experts with concerns "tough noogies". Some officials, like Washington elections director Stuart Holmes, seem more worried than Raffensperger: "I'm expecting there will be a lot of conversations about the voting systems that were used in 2024 in 2025," he said.
Nobody in the U.S. government seems willing to consider dropping machines in favor of traditional paper ballots to increase trust in elections, whether in the U.S. or overseas. Judges in Brazil recently banned former president Jair Bolsonaro from running for office for eight years, citing his questioning of the country's electronic voting machines – which were endorsed by the Biden regime – after he tried unsuccessfully to secure a return to paper ballots.
