Opinion | Trump Is Being Manipulated by Putin. What Should We Do? - The New York Times
Never thought I'd see the day that a Texas Republican points out that the president of his own party is a dupe to Putin.

Алексей Навальный — Путин очень боится партию «Россия Будущего» и отказывается ее регистрировать
Вопрос победы оппозиции на выборах на самом деле очень простой и очень предметный. Он заключается в одном: допуске оппозиции на выборы. И даже уже сейчас, в конкретных исторических обстоятельствах: допуске на выборы нашей партии. Как бы она ни называлась: «Народный Альянс» или (после кражи названия) «Партия прогресса» или (после ещё одной кражи названия) партия «Россия Будущего».

Будет наша партия зарегистрирована — она легко сначала преодолеет барьер и на федеральном уровне, и в любом региональном заксобрании. А потом будет бороться за большинство.

Не будет зарегистрирована — каждые выборы будут проходить по одному сценарию. «Оппозиция» будет представлена в виде «Яблока» и, прости Господи, «партии Собчак», которые даже с деньгами и с положительным освещением федеральных каналов не способны получить более 1% голосов. Нигде. Никогда. Ни при каких условиях.

Даже в Москве на последних президентских выборах Явлинский и Собчак набрали меньше Жириновского, чего не случалось никогда за всю историю — чтобы в столице те, кто именует себя «демократами», набирали меньше ЛДПР.

How to Fight Voter Suppression in 2018 | Ed Burmila
although voter ID laws are now common, most state laws do not have strict requirements. Nine states—Kansas, Wisconsin, Indiana, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee, North Carolina, Ohio, and Arizona—will not allow an individual to vote without an approved ID. In every other state, a voter may establish their identity with something other than a government Photo ID; an affidavit of identity is often sufficient. Be ready to provide citizens with information on acceptable forms of ID as well as alternatives if no ID is obtained. If resources permit, organize vanpools to take voters to state offices where ID can be obtained; African-American churches and community groups are already doing this. Anyone with a car can be a part of the solution.

Top Voting Machine Vendor Admits It Installed Remote-Access Software on Systems Sold to States
In a letter sent to Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) in April and obtained recently by Motherboard, Election Systems and Software acknowledged that it had "provided pcAnywhere remote connection software … to a small number of customers between 2000 and 2006," which was installed on the election-management system ES&S sold them...

ES&S is the top voting machine maker in the country, a position it held in the years 2000-2006 when it was installing pcAnywhere on its systems. The company's machines were used statewide in a number of states, and at least 60 percent of ballots cast in the US in 2006 were tabulated on ES&S election-management systems...

Software like pcAnywhere is used by system administrators to access and control systems from a remote location to conduct maintenance or upgrade or alter software. But election-management systems and voting machines are supposed to be air-gapped for security reasons—that is, disconnected from the internet and from any other systems that are connected to the internet. ES&S customers who had pcAnywhere installed also had modems on their election-management systems so ES&S technicians could dial into the systems and use the software to troubleshoot, thereby creating a potential port of entry for hackers as well.

The Moscow Midterms | FiveThirtyEight
But for security experts like Halderman, the notion of trust is more complicated. He believes that the public’s awareness of potential problems is actually crucial to fixing the system. “Our primary goal isn’t for people to blindly trust the election system. Our goal is for them to have a basis to trust the election system, to have a rational level of trust,” he said. “If anything, people having unfounded confidence in the election system just assures that problems will not be fixed.”

Outlets in Eight Countries Are Using Our Tool to Monitor… — ProPublica
In Germany, Spiegel Online, Süddeutsche Zeitung and Tagesschau all asked their users to install the tool before elections in September. Ads collected there included anti-Green Party posts from a mysterious group called Greenwatch, which provided an address that didn’t correspond to the postal code given, and the name of a contact person who isn’t actually listed as residing there. The Green Party told Facebook and German authorities that the page provided false contact information, which would violate German regulations. Facebook said it could not confirm the accuracy of the contact information and that it expected the government to do so. The government said it lacked legal authority to force Facebook to divulge the advertiser’s identity. The posts remained on Facebook until the group itself deleted its Facebook page. Another misleading German ad, from far-right party AFD, attempted to inflame anti-immigrant sentiment.
