A federal judge in Georgia has ruled that there is substantial evidence of cybersecurity deficiencies in the state’s election machines, potentially violating plaintiffs’ constitutional rights.

The judge set a trial date for January 9, 2024, for the case filed by election integrity advocates and individual voters, who are requesting the use of hand-marked paper ballots instead of electronic voting machines.

The lawsuit includes expert reports highlighting weaknesses in the election system, prompting concerns and calls for compromise and legislative action.

“The Court notes that the record evidence does not suggest that the Plaintiffs are conspiracy theorists of any variety. Indeed, some of the nation’s leading cybersecurity experts and computer scientists have provided testimony and affidavits on behalf of the Plaintiff’s case in the long course of this litigation,” the judge wrote.

“The Court cannot wave a magic wand in this case to address the varied challenges to our democracy and election system in recent years, including those presented in this case.”

“But reasonable, timely discussion and compromise in this case, coupled with prompt, informed legislative action, might certainly make a difference that benefits the parties and the public.”

The judge also rejected claims that criticism of the voting machines is based on conspiracy theories.
