Antiquated machines

As it stands now, Racine County

poll workers print out results on paper similar to a grocery receipt, with those results taken to the municipal hall and then faxed to the county.

In large voter turnout elections, it can mean for a lengthy lag time for results to be made public. By contrast, poll workers in Kenosha County send results through a wireless Internet connection, making for a much shorter Election Night.

Under the plans, municipalities would pay $9,500 per machine, one of which is at each polling place.

Racine County gets new voting machines in time for Dec. 19 primary.

A total of 71 new machines were purchased.

the ImageCast Evolution by Dominion Voting —

One of the biggest impacts the new machines will have is fast election night results, with results transmitted wirelessly from each polling location directly to the county clerk’s office at the Racine County Courthouse, 730 Wisconsin Ave.

However, the wireless function will not be used in either the Dec. 19 primary or January special election, as the elections were not scheduled until after the new voter machine implementation was planned. The wireless transmission will begin during the regularly scheduled Feb. 20 spring primary.

Elections Watchdog Says Wisconsin Refused to Warn Clerks About Flawed Dominion ICE Voting Machines

McKim, a former auditor with the state, says despite her urgings, the Wisconsin Elections Commission has refused to tell municipal clerks about serious security flaws with Dominion ImageCast Evolution (ICE) voting machines, which are used in 13 of the state’s 72 counties.

One of the biggest issues, she says, is the voting machines.

McKim, a former auditor with the state, says despite her urgings, the Wisconsin Elections Commission has refused to tell municipal clerks about serious security flaws with Dominion ImageCast Evolution (ICE) voting machines, which are used in 13 of the state’s 72 counties.

“In a rational system, that machine would never have been certified by anyone, ever,” says McKim.

The Dominion ICE machines were approved by the state of Wisconsin in the summer of 2015, with employees of the Government Accountability Board assuring the board members that the machines can run elections that are “transparent, fair and secure.” But cybersecurity experts consider them some of the worst voting machines on the market in terms of security.
