One Bible verse that I reference nearly every day is 1 Corinthians 1:19: “For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”
the machines can’t connect to the internet…well, they weren’t connected to the internet
I wish I had this prior to the Colorado primary election.
On June 24, Secretary of State Jena Griswold – who is also the head of the National Association of Secretaries of State – issued her “Week in Brief.” The first page includes a “Security Best Practices Reminder.”
The content reads: “It is recommended that during the election period counties periodically continue to check that Wi-Fi is disabled on all components of their voting system with Wi-Fi capability if possible. A guide on how to check Wi-Fi is disabled on components of the Dominion Democracy Suite System is attached to this newsletter. It is also recommended that counties confirm that their video surveillance systems are properly working and storing the required footage.”
I am told this was also included in the Week in Brief updates for the two weeks prior to the June 24 update as well.
hey, wait a sec…
First, they told us the machines can’t connect to the internet. It was mockingbird – everyone said it. Message discipline was strong.
Then – after components and wireless modems in the machines were revealed – they said, “They weren’t connected to the internet.” Here in Colorado, Matt Crane is on record. Holly at Altitude wrote about this in Only We Can Audit Ourselves in June of 2021:
“In May 2021, at an Independence Institute hearing, Matt Crane, the Executive Director of the Colorado County Clerk’s Association was presented with the fact that our voting machines had been built in China with wireless modems installed he stated, ‘Well, the modems are turned off.’”
Neither Griswold’s office or Matt Crane could be reached for comment. I will update this report with any responses received.
This wasn’t just Colorado. In Georgia, they said “air-gapped.”
You remember. We all remember.
if it can’t happen, then why is checking for it happening a security best practice?
Now they tell us that – still, they totally aren’t connected to the internet and don’t you even imply that, you election denier – but just in case they somehow get connected, “during the election period counties periodically continue to check that Wi-Fi is disabled on all components of their voting system.”
I asked Cyber Forensic Auditor and Expert Doug Logan for comment on the recommendation, and his reply was:
It’s not bad advice, but shouldn’t there be a way where it is impossible for the wireless to be on ever? Why is the capability even there? And how is it that they “turn themselves on” anyway? Shouldn’t certification be checking for this stuff?Doug Logan
This is a Security Best Practice that was issued in three updates to the Colorado Clerks prior to this primary election, and prior to the November 2021 election.
Before November 2021, no one can recall SecState ever talking about WiFi connectivity at all, let alone issuing recommendations to check the connectivity.
there goes the narrative again
This isn’t an oversight – they issued the recommendation three times. The Clerks need to check and make sure that WiFi doesn’t get re-enabled. They don’t say how it happens, but by issuing the Security Best Practice to monitor for it, they ARE admitting that it can happen.
If the recommendation to monitor for this occurrence wasn’t issued prior to November 2021, how can they say with any certainty that the electronic voting equipment wasn’t connected to the internet – in any state, not just Colorado – on November 3, 2020 or January 5, 2021?
And I bet they are kicking themselves (or the Week in Brief author) for not considering the admissions we can draw from their recommendations. I’m sure they’ll be more careful next time, but seriously:
Is there any other logical excuse for Griswold’s public admission?
