“Virginia moves to eliminate voting machines considered top hacking target”

Good news via Politico:

Virginia’s election office on Friday urged the state’s election supervisors to prohibit touchscreen voting machines before November’s elections, saying the devices posed unacceptable digital risks.

If approved, the move would represent one of the most dramatic actions taken to help secure elections since a 2016 presidential race rife with concerns about digital meddling and vote tampering. Election security experts have long warned that such machines are a top target for hackers.
