MIT Security Gurus: Only Paper Ballots Are Secure

Gee, I'm shocked!

In recent years, there has been a growing interest in using internet and mobile technology to increase access to the voting process. At the same time, computer security experts caution that paper ballots are the only secure means of voting....

These are MIT guys.  But since the Democrat Party knows how to do vote-fraud (they've practiced for decades), you'll find all sorts of ballyhoo and hoorah about TechnoGeekVoting wonders.

...MIT researchers are raising another concern: They say they have uncovered security vulnerabilities in a mobile voting application that was used during the 2018 midterm elections in West Virginia. Their security analysis of the application, called Voatz, pinpoints a number of weaknesses, including the opportunity for hackers to alter, stop, or expose how an individual user has voted. Additionally, the researchers found that Voatz’s use of a third-party vendor for voter identification and verification poses potential privacy issues for users....
A few days ago, the local rag yammered on about a Microsoft technology for voting.  It's a Shiny Object, but completely un-necessary--except for the clerks who are inconvenienced by paper ballot counting.

You choose:  vote security?  Or Shiny Object Squirrels??
