ATLANTA (AP) — An effort to access voting system software in several states and provide it to allies of former President Donald Trump as they sought to overturn the results of the 2020 election has raised “serious threats” ahead of next year's presidential contest, according to a group of experts who urged federal agencies to investigate.
The letter sent by nearly two dozen computer scientists, election security experts and voter advocacy organizations asks for a federal probe and a risk assessment of voting machines used throughout the country, saying the software breaches have “urgent implications for the 2024 election and beyond.” The breaches affected voting equipment made by two companies that together count over 70% of the votes cast across the country, according to the letter.
“The multistate effort to unlawfully obtain copies of voting system software poses serious threats to election security and national security and constitutes a potential criminal conspiracy of enormous consequences,” the group wrote in a letter sent to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland, special counsel Jack Smith, FBI Director Christopher Wray and Jen Easterly, director of the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency. “We must protect our most sacred tenet of democracy — the security of our vote.”
The letter, sent to the agencies late Monday, was organized by the left-leaning group Free Speech for People, a nonprofit advocacy group focused on election and campaign finance reforms. The group also has filed challenges in a handful of states seeking to ban Trump from the ballot in 2024 under the insurrection clause of the 14th Amendment.
The FBI, Justice Department and Smith’s office declined comment. The cybersecurity agency did not immediately respond.

Paper ballots then.
It’s the only way to be sure.
Other countries can find out who won before they go to bed. Not us anymore. If the baked in fraud is enough, then the winner is declared, if not, the counting continues for weeks until the winner is declared.
They don’t need software capers to steal this election. 100 over-weight (rotund) lesbians on bikes with a few stash houses will swing the vote in any purple state.
2016 was our last “free and fair” election.
There is this thing where you accuse your opponents of doing exactly what you are doing to cover your bass.
Projection. Dems are experts.
The letter, sent to the agencies late Monday, was organized by the left-leaning group Free Speech for People, a nonprofit advocacy group focused on election and campaign finance reforms.
The Free Speech for People non-profit is involved in trying to deny Republican voters their candidate, in both the Primaries & General Elections.(See 14th Amendment cases against Trump.)
Why are they still being funded?
Cut all public sector money to this organization, as well as any public money that is directed to the foundations that support this left-wing non profit.
In 1848, the Telegraph was only 5 years old. They Election was held on 1 day, and the results took only one day.😡
YAHOO trying to distract you from the fact that voting by mail is how the elections are being controlled.
But of course, nothing could have happened in 2020.
I’ll bet they try to lay this at the feet of Trump at some
They always accuse us of doing what they have been doing.
So if I have this right, “experts” predict this stuff in advance. Wild-eyed conspiracy theorists say this same stuff happened per their experience and observation.
They’re signaling a year ahead of the election what they’ll use as an excuse for endless recounts as they desperately try to manipulate STEAL 2.
Voting machines are the greatest threat to real democracy. It’s a big winner for RAT Democrazy.
And stamp the hand of each voter with purple ink on the way out, as they did in Iraq.
Planning the steal. This time, they will play election-security zealots instead of "security is rayciss" three-card monte dealers.
The theme will still be that THEY have to be in charge and exclude the opposing party's inspectors. Same scam, new name.
This is so rich! If the software is vulnerable now then what changed between the most secure election ever and now? NOTHING! Go to paper ballots that are counted at the PRECINCT level and with OBSERVERS and with VIDEO of tables just like at every casino or 7/11 over the cash register! FREEDOM!!
They can cheat all they want but here’s the non-negotiable, bottom line. Trump wins or the shooting starts. That’s not a threat, just an observation.
Here we go again. Where I live, we use machines that aren’t connected to the internet and that only count votes.
so when the leftists lose they can claim the vote was rigged? hmmm...sounds so familiar. now wondering if anyone on the left will be hounded, jailed, ostracized or forced into bankruptcy for claiming the vote was rigged. leftism...where pathetic minds create truly tragic comedy. popcorn anyone?
“Voting experts warn of ‘serious threats’ for 2024 from election equipment software breaches”
Where is the “conservative Republican” leadership in preparing to fight this threat with trained grassroots Republican poll watchers?
We need to demand an answer.
