In Georgia, online voting system problems alleged

ATLANTA (AP) — The Georgia secretary of state’s office, which is run by Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp, says it is investigating an attempted hack of the state’s online voter database that will be used at polling places for Tuesday’s election.

The statement from Kemp’s office says it is investigating the state Democratic Party in connection with the hacking attempt, but it offered no evidence and didn’t specify allegations.

Elections-security advocates critical of Kemp say they have new evidence that Georgia’s online registered voter database managed by his office is subject to hacking that could alter voters’ information or remove them from the registered voter list altogether.

Kemp’s office says it notified federal officials. The FBI declined to comment.

Kemp’s opponent, Democrat Stacey Abrams, has called him “an architect of voter suppression.”
