Republican Secretary of State Brian Kemp called it an attempted federal takeover and insisted his office was already protecting Georgia's vote from hackers.Georgia effectively outsourced management of the touch-screen voting machines it adopted statewide 15 years ago to the center, which earned $792,000 in its most recent annual contract.The work has been all-encompassing, from designing ballots to creating memory cards with lists of registered voters for each county to testing and certifying each piece of equipment after repairs.A cybersecurity expert warned King in August — only days after Kemp turned away federal help — that he had been able to copy records on Georgia's 6.7 million voters and other critical documents from the center's public website, including passwords poll workers used to sign into a central server on Election Day.Kemp also used intensive procedures to verify voters' registration status, prompting accusations from the American Civil Liberties Union, the Georgia NAACP and Common Cause that thousands of eligible citizens lost their right to vote.[...] when voting-rights activists demanded an independent, system-wide security review ahead of Handel's June 20 special congressional election victory, Kemp dismissed their experts as "Ivy League professors."According to their emails, obtained by voting-technology activists, KSU officials were most concerned that the "personally identifiable information" of all registered voters had been easily accessible.A damning report by KSU's information technology department also said the center's reportedly secure private network for creating and testing ballots was in a closet with a live internet connection and a door that "was not latching properly," in an office with a wireless access point.
