With voters heading to the polls for today’s primary, a spokesman for the state Elections Commission is talking about security.
Reid Magney says they have safeguards in place. He says while hackers might be able to get into a system, if they have enough time and access, they don’t leave voting machines on a street corner or in coffee shops.
Magney says they’re very confident that they have many different checks and balances, and paper trails, to ensure that nothing’s going on.
The polls for today’s partisan primary are open until 8 p.m. WHBY will have the results throughout the night.
Magney was a guest on Fresh Take with Josh Dukelow on WHBY this morning.
