Richmond County, along with over 560 voting precincts in Virginia, is going to need new voting machines after state investigators decertified the equipment based on complaints received during the 2014 election. The machines would have to be replaced before November elections for around $91,000.
It turns out that the deadline is actually early June–June 9, to be exact–which is when state primaries are held. The WinVote machines are vulnerable to cyberattacks, and investigators were able to connect to the machines’ wireless networks–where votes are tallied–by cell phone. Virginia is the only state that still uses this particular voting machine.
