Virginia election officials tell us so far, so good when it comes to problems.
They have not seen any attempts to hack into databases before the 2020 election, and they say hackers did look for weaknesses in Virginia’s election websites four years ago, but they made changes.
Virginia Elections Commissioner Christopher Piper says it’s not possible for votes to be changed.
Three years ago Virginia ordered all remaining touch screen electronic voting machines to be taken out of service. You now fill out a paper ballot and slide it into a scanner.
“None of our voting equipment, the scanners that you put your ballots through, none of those are ever connected to the internet. So there’s no chance for those to be hacked from an outside source,” said Piper
The only thing connected to the internet is the voter rolls.
