Georgia’s Secretary of State’s Spokesperson has called Judge Amy Totenberg’s conclusions about the unconstitutionality of Georgia’s Voting Systems “silly and unfounded”.
The story in the Associated Press is by Kate Brumback.
Georgia election officials have for years ignored, downplayed and failed to address serious problems with the state’s election management system and voting machines, a federal judge said in a scathing order this week.
U.S. District Judge Amy Totenberg said those problems place a burden on citizens’ rights to cast a vote and have it reliably counted. She called Georgia’s voting system “antiquated, seriously flawed, and vulnerable to failure, breach, contamination, and attack.”
Despite those findings, Totenberg ruled Thursday that Georgia voters will use that same election system this fall because of concerns about the state’s capacity to make an interim switch while also implementing a new system .
