Hacking the Vote – Election Security in 2020

The 2020 election is just months away and states around the nation are using outdated and vulnerable voting machines. To make matters worse, many of these machines leave no audit trail and no way for us to know that the vote we cast is the vote which was recorded. In this extended episode, John Bonifaz and Susan Greenhalgh of Free Speech for People and election security advocate and attorney Jennifer Cohn join Alyssa Milano to discuss the threats to our election and what we can do about it.
