Alex Halderman, the computer expert advising Jill Stein’s recount effort, corrects the record, referring to the vote-auditing efforts that do exist in states like PA as “superficial spot checks.” His conclusion: “Much more needs to be done to secure America’s elections, and important new safeguards could be put in place by 2018. States still using paperless voting machines should replace them with optical scan systems, and all states should update their audit and recount procedures. There are fast and inexpensive ways to verify (or correct) computer voting results using a risk-limiting audit, a statistical method that involves manually inspecting randomly selected paper ballots. Officials need to begin preparing soon to make sure all of these improvements are ready before the next big election.”
