    Thankfully, we can still go in and number our choices on paper. I wouln't be electronically voting while ever I have a choice.

    "Russian Hackers Were In a Position’ to Alter Florida Voter Rolls, Rubio Confirms..."

    A single line in the long-anticipated Mueller report about a breach in a Florida county’s elections system has state officials scrambling...

    Lisa Lewis, the supervisor of elections, stumbled on an important email sent to her and three others in the office, by then a week old, that appeared to be from VR Systems, the vendor that sells electronic voter list equipment to nearly every county in the state....

    Though it had VR Systems’ distinctive logo, with a red V and a blue R, the email contained a malicious Trojan virus, and it originated not from the elections vendor but from the Russian military intelligence unit known as the G.R.U. The email had been sent to 120 elections email accounts across Florida...

    Also buried in Ms. Lewis’s inbox was a warning from VR’s chief operating officer, flagging the dangerous spearphishing attempt and warning all his customers not to click on it. But, it now appears, someone did...

    'The F.B.I.,' ..., 'believes that this operation enabled the G.R.U. to gain access to the network of at least one Florida county government.'...

    In an interview on Friday, Senator Marco Rubio of Florida took it one step further, saying that Russian hackers not only accessed a Florida voting system, but were 'in a position' to change voter roll data...

    Mr. Rubio said he was constrained as a member of the intelligence committee as to how much he could tell his constituents...."
