Report: 15 Million May Not Vote Over Fear of Hacked Election
More than 15 million people may not vote on Election Day over cyber security doubts, according to a new report.
Carbon Black, a cyber security firm, released a report on Thursday after surveying 700 voters. The report found that more than half of voters (56 percent) fear the election could be affected be a cyber security attack. A slightly higher percentage of voters—58 percent—believe it’s likely that electronic voting machines could be hacked on Nov. 8. More than a one-third of voters think their information is not secure (36 percent).
One out of every five voters who believe their information is not secure may potentially stay home over their cyber security fears, which could amount to more than 15 million voters, the report says. – READ MORE
