Judge Finds Substantial Flaws in Georgia’s Electronic Voting Machines, Sets Bench Trial for January 2024

Atlanta, Georgia – November 16, 2023 – In a significant development, District Court Judge Amy Totenberg has issued a decision concurring that there is sufficient reason to believe that the electronic voting machines used by the State of Georgia have substantial flaws. The decision, which has garnered widespread attention, raises concerns about cybersecurity deficiencies and their potential impact on voters’ constitutional rights.

Judge Totenberg’s ruling comes after a thorough review of the evidence presented by the plaintiffs in the case. She found that there is sufficient cause to believe that there may be “cybersecurity deficiencies that unconstitutionally burden Plaintiffs’ First and Fourteenth Amendment rights and capacity to cast effective votes that are accurately counted.”

To address these concerns, Judge Totenberg has scheduled a bench trial for January 9, 2024, which will not involve a jury. However, she emphasized that a compromise might be possible if the state legislature were to take action.

“The Court cannot wave a magic wand in this case to address the varied challenges to our democracy and election system in recent years, including those presented in this case,” she wrote. “But reasonable, timely discussion and compromise in this case, coupled with prompt, informed legislative action, might certainly make a difference that benefits the parties and the public.”

Crucially, the court denied claims that criticism of security flaws in Georgia’s voting machines is based purely on “conspiracy theories.”

“The Court notes that the record evidence does not suggest that the Plaintiffs are conspiracy theorists of any variety. Indeed, some of the nation’s leading cybersecurity experts and computer scientists have provided testimony and affidavits on behalf of Plaintiffs’ case in the long course of this litigation,” the judge’s footnote remarked.

The District Court highlighted several established objections to the 2020 election in its decision. First, it recognized that because the Direct Recording Electronic (DRE) voting machines did not include a paper voting trail, voters could not verify whether their intended votes for particular candidates were actually cast.

Furthermore, the court noted that several voting machines were running on outdated operating systems, such as Windows XP/2000, and the DRE machines were using software from 2005 that was no longer supported or receiving security patches. Additionally, the court reviewed newly available evidence regarding the CES/KSU data breach, data systems mismanagement, and record destruction events, which raised further concerns.

The court also found vulnerabilities in the state’s voter registration database and questioned the state’s ability to audit the functionality of the Ballot Marking Devices (BMDs), particularly in cases where QR codes did not match human-readable text.

Ultimately, the court concluded that there are “material facts in dispute presented in the record that preclude its grant of the State Defendants’ Motions for Summary Judgment on the primary claims.” As a result, a bench trial will take place in January 2024 to address these unresolved issues.

However, the court acknowledged that the most important remedies for election integrity may be political rather than judicial.

“To be clear from the start, the Court does not have the legal authority to grant the broadest relief that Plaintiffs request in this case without directly infringing on the state legislature’s vested power to enact legislation,” the judge said.

Nevertheless, the court maintained that it would consider evidence suggesting that insufficient election security may comprise a violation of constitutional rights. Plaintiffs in the case, including election security experts, have testified on the vulnerabilities and risks associated with Georgia’s electronic voting systems.

The court’s decision has granted the State Defendants’ Motions for Summary Judgment in part and denied them in part. However, Fulton County’s Motion for Summary Judgment was granted in full.

The upcoming bench trial in January 2024 will be closely watched as it addresses the significant concerns surrounding the electronic voting machines in Georgia and their potential impact on election integrity and voters’ rights.
