Statement by Robert J. Borer, Candidate for Secretary of State
A post-election audit is not required by Nebraska Statute. It can, however, be conducted at the discretion of the Secretary of State. Between 2-2.5% of precincts are selected. This audit merely scans the same ballots already counted. What if these ballots were illegally cast using phantom voters?
In a world where cybercriminals roam freely and have successfully penetrated both public and private sector entities seemingly every day, is recounting enough?
I contend it is not!
If Nebraska plans to continue relying on computerized technology to tabulate our votes, then we are ill-equipped to prevent a cyber-crime, let alone even detect it. Besides sleeping through our elections, what has Bob Evnen been doing to secure our elections from cybercriminals?
