Hacker threat extends beyond parties
“Campaigns’ Election Day ground games are also ripe for hacks that could tilt a close race, said Herb Lin, a senior cyber policy scholar at the Hoover Institution. ‘There are get-out-the-vote operations, and sometimes for example people say, ‘We’ll give you a ride to the polls.’ That’s going to be locally managed. It’s some person on a spreadsheet in a local precinct.
‘You don’t need to stop it,’ Lin said. ‘All you need to do is muck it up a little bit. … And if you muck it up just a little bit, you may be able to throw things your way enough to make a difference.'”
