“The big picture on election security in the 2020 campaign after Super Tuesday: could be worse — but also could be better,” writes Philip Ewing in their recent NPR article entitled “What To Know About The Election Security Situation After Super Tuesday.”
“The biggest day of voting so far in this year's race wasn't problem-free: Officials dealt with problems in Texas, California and North Carolina, plus tornadoes disrupted the vote in middle Tennessee,” Ewing explains.
“And, as national security officials acknowledged before and during the vote on Tuesday, foreign malefactors continue to try to influence the information environment in the United States via agitation and disinformation on social media,” Ewing continues.
According to the article, “Even so, Americans appear to have been able to cast a ballot as they wished without major cyberattacks, information dumps or other mischief like that seen in the wave of active measures launched by Russia in 2016. So far.”
"Tuesday may have been a success, from the perspective of foreign influence — but folks ought to remain vigilant," said David Levine, a former elections supervisor who now serves as elections integrity fellow with the Alliance for Securing Democracy, a group in Washington, in Ewing’s piece.
Ewing shares, “The problems and disruptions that took place around the country were connected with elections equipment systems, shortages of poll workers and long lines of voters.”
The NPR article continues, “They followed comparatively smooth primaries in South Carolina and New Hampshire, a comparatively smooth caucus in Nevada and the high-profile implosion of Iowa's caucuses — itself the result of problems with an app used to tally and report caucus results.”
In sum, there are many complexities and opportunities for vulnerabilities to hinder Super Tuesday progress.
