HACKED: Wisconsin State Elections Board Website
By Brad Friedman on 8/20/2011 2:37pm
Wisconsin’s old State Elections Board website (http://elections.state.wi.us/) appears to have been “hacked by Sovalye”…
[Hat-tip Election Integrity advocates Jeannie Dean, Neal Schulz and the folks at theFacebook Election Integrity group.]
[Update 7:19p CT: It looks as if officials have now restored the site. Sort of. Hat-tip again to Neal Schulz.]
The State Elections Board was replaced by the WI Government Accountability Board (G.A.B.) in 2008 as the state’s top election authority, combining responsibilities of both the Elections Board and the State Ethics Board into the agency. The G.A.B.’s website (http://gab.wi.gov/) does not appear to be hacked. For now.
Of course, that’s just a website, not an actual election or e-voting database. So just because the state’s Elections Board website proved to be insecure and was hacked doesnot mean their actual elections are vulnerable to hacking in any way, shape or form, right? That, even though the state, shamefully, does not bother to check even a single ballot to make sure it has been tallied accurately during an election by their computer op-scanners made by Diebold, Sequoia and ES&S.
