GA officials threaten grave consequences if they cannot wipe election machines


The Epoch TimesGeorgia officials on Thursday asked a judge to lift an order that is blocking officials from altering information in voting machines in three counties, arguing the machines are needed to prepare for the upcoming Senate runoff elections.

Janine Eveler, director of the Cobb County Elections Department, said the agency is already executing its plan for the upcoming runoffs. Preparation of voting machines, including clearing memory cards, started before order, she said.

The order is holding up testing of machines that will be required for in-person voting on Election Day, according to Eveler. The first step in the testing process is to clear memory cards of data from the Nov. 3 election and create cards with new data, which takes at least two-and-a-half days in total.

Memory cards are cheap. There is absolutely no reason not to preserve those used in an election for at least several years so that the data can be examined. the hurry here is entirely unseemly and unnecessary. Just buy new memory cards, allow the machines to be examined and released. There's no need to wipe anything. Further, I believe there is a federal law that requires election data to be preserved even aside from this order.
