Election security has become a hot topic recently. And with election day less than five months away, the COVID-19 pandemic has made the task of protecting the election from cyber-attacks even more challenging.
Increasing the risk of a potential technical malfunction, voters are also required to a lot of things remotely that would normally be able to do in person:
• Register to vote at a government office
• Request an absentee ballot
• Renew a driver’s license
Since many election officials are required to work from home right now, there is a heightened awareness regarding the risk for people to become victims of a voting phishing campaign.
So, what features ensure online voting is safe and secure?
• Single-vote verification – Technical term for preventing duplicate votes
• Secure nomination and election sites for American citizens
• Ballot tracking and data privacy – Voting in real time.
• 24/7 monitoring – Firewalls, back-up generators, and server failures.
Anything is possible!
