I don't think there was much new information since DePerno's suit was kicked. This guy is mild mannered but don't underestimate him. He's one smart cookie. If you are curious as to what's happening, he can be followed at Depernolaw.com and he's on Twitter. I'm not, I've been suspended 4 times and they want information I won't give them to be let on. I can still get on it and see things, but it can be a bit difficult and I can't interact with posts.
I've mentioned that if you are going to stuff a ballot box either the old fashioned way with paper or electronically that you need headroom in the voter roles. You can't put more paper in than you have registered voters without sending up big red flags.
I talked a bit about the voting machines themselves and how they work but there's another piece that pulls both of those pieces together and that's the poll books.
We voted early in the General election and we still signed in on the old paper logs. On Nov 3rd, Tarrant county was using tablets for this function and the first time I used them was in the recent run off election. I'm not happy about that. Lets say you want to cheat this election. The first thing I would do is to get the list of registered voters. Those are easy to get. I have a copy on my desktop, all 1.2 Million lines of it. Now it's late in the day and I want to check the turnout in the "Whig party" districts and or see how the turn out is by voters who voted in the "Whig" primary. Those old paper books made that very hard to do. I can only cheat a little or I risk putting in too many fake votes. With electronic pole books I can hack my way in, do a quick comparison as to who has voted and who hasn't and I know what my headroom is and how many votes I can insert.
Jovon Pulitzer claimed that they had people that has hacked the poll books in GA during a legislative hearing. I believe him. Many people said that even if it happened, it didn't matter because you couldn't change votes from the poll books. That's not the purpose. You need to see how many ballots you can stuff at 0 dark thirty in the morning and with access to the poll books, you know. Other jurisdictions have been using electronic books for a while.
They claim these things aren't connected to the internet. In some places that's technically true. Many of these devices communicate via cellular modem, much like we used to dial up. Our connection from the house to the ISP wasn't "on the internet" it was on the phone system. That can be hacked too. There's more to this, but none of it's proven yet. In other cases folks are lying and these things are connected to the net, and in other cases they don't need to be. I can change things with direct access. In fact manipulating files on the election equipment is as easily done as manipulating spreadsheet on your own computer.
Sorry these are so long, but it's a complicated subject.
