All good
It's also providing pro bono fraud protection to the Democratic National Committee and the Republican National Committee through the 2020 presidential election. These are all good but are they going to do it accord the country? A few states would not be enough.

Re: Security fundamentals
Disruption of the election process, reporting, and tampering with voter rolls is more of a concern. That is true, this will have more impact in the results than anything else.

You can make meaningful change in two years" before the 2020 presidential election I would agree with this. As long as all the states agree technology can secure it quite well.

US election Security
It is really hard to believe that we are still discussing security of election, with the technology on hand this should have been resolved years earlier.

Re: Security fundamentals
Not sure what you mean by "legacy voting." Voter fraud is rare overall. Disruption of the election process, reporting, and tampering with voter rolls is more of a concern.

Security fundamentals
Alas, even aside from all of electronic voting's unique technological flaws, the big picture that many miss in this conversation is that "legacy voting" isn't even secure! You don't need to be a hacker to commit voting fraud in this country. Often, you only need enough nerve.
