The U.S. Voting System Remains Vulnerable 6 Months Before Election Day. What Now?

As America heads toward the 2018 midterms, there is an 800-pound gorilla in the voting booth.

Despite improvements since Russia's attack on the 2016 presidential race, the U.S. elections infrastructure is vulnerable — and will remain so in November.

Cybersecurity expert Bruce Schneier laid out the problem to an overflowing room full of election directors and secretaries of state — people charged with running and securing elections — at a conference at Harvard University this spring.

"Computers are basically insecure," said Schneier. "Voting systems are not magical in any way. They are computers."

Why does not the Administration utilize the many millions of dollars that it has ( $120,000,000) to investigation election process and probably abuse by Russia?
