DZTV: Election Security

What one large county is doing to protect the vote.

by Eric Holdeman / August 9, 2018

Election security is a hot topic in the news. With Russian meddling confirmed, people and governments are working overtime to make our system of voting as secure as possible. This Disaster Zone TV program looks at the security procedures, both physical and cyber, for one large county, King County, Wash., which has a population of 2.2 million and 1.3 million voters.

If every county in the nation was doing as much, our election system would be much more secure in protecting the voter rolls and the vote count.
