Judge orders Georgia to ditch 'vulnerable' voting machines by 2020 A federal judge has ordered Georgia to stop using its old, "vulnerable" paperlessvoting machines by next year. US District Court Judge Amy Totenberg will allow the state to use the machines for special and municipal elections in November, accepting an argument that it would be too disruptive to switch to paper ballots, but that'll be the last time they're used. "Georgia's current voting equipment, software, election and voter databases, are antiquated, seriously flawed, and vulnerable to failure, breach, contamination, and attack," she wrote in her ruling.

The president went on to retweet a post claiming without evidence that certain areas in California, a reliably blue state, have more registered voters than adults.

The legislation requires the use of paper ballots, includes funding for the Election Assistance Commission and mandates candidates, campaign officials and their family members to notify the FBI if foreign governments offer assistance.

"Mueller's testimony was a clarion call for election security. Mueller's testimony should be a wake-up call to every American, Democrat, Republican, liberal, conservative, that the integrity of our elections is at stake. ... This is all about the future of this country," Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said last month.
