“Cyber security concerns lead NC officials to delay approval of new voting machines”

News and Observer:

North Carolina election officials were supposed to certify new voting machines on Thursday for millions of voters to start using in 2020.
But they declined to make any decisions, citing uncertainty over who owns the three companies that were seeking approval to sell voting machines here. The state gave the them until next week to divulge everyone who owns at least 5 percent of their companies or any parent or subsidiary company.


“I believe this follows along with the cyber security concerns we have found in the Mueller report and other documentation that has been furnished to our board,” Robert Cordle, the chairman of the State Board of Elections, said Thursday when the board announced its surprise decision.
