New study finds voting machines in Indiana are vulnerable to security issues

Monday, October 05, 2020

From Indiana University Public Policy Institute.

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana is one of only eight states that will use paperless voting machines in the November 2020 elections. Yet new analysis from the IU Public Policy Institute finds that the state’s reliance on older paperless voting machines could pose security risks in the upcoming election.

In 52 of Indiana’s 92 counties, voters submit their ballots using direct-recording electronic voting machines (DREs) that do not include a verified paper trail for votes. These machines account for nearly 60 percent of the state’s voting equipment and affect the majority of Hoosier voters.

“Without a verifiable paper record of votes, it can be difficult to detect security breaches or errors in the electronic systems,” says Joti Martin, a policy analyst at PPI. “Without that paper trail, it also is more challenging to try to recount or audit votes in the event of an election-related issue.”
