Concern is growing about the extent of Russian hacking of U.S. voting systems. But a top voting official sees an equally grave threat in efforts by the federal government to stop future cyberattacks.
The man in charge of the nations’s largest voting system says the National Security Agency’s failure to share information about threats to American elections “places our democracy in harm’s way.”
New Hampshire is improperly rejecting hundreds of absentee ballots, many cast by people with disabilities, over signature issues, a new lawsuit filed Wednesday by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) alleges.
Says the complaint: “No voter should be disenfranchised simply because of penmanship.”
A 2010 New Hampshire law allows election officials to reject absentee ballots if the signature on the ballot appears not to match other records. But people with disabilities may need someone else to sign their name — which is allowed under federal law — or may have a signature that changes over time.
