We speak to Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) as he prepares to leave office after four years at the helm.
As Virginians go to the polls for Super Tuesday, election officials are pulling out voting machines and setting up polling places. Last summer, Virginia de-certified nearly a third of its voting machines because they had virtually no protection against hacking. While those particular machines have been replaced, many of the Commonwealth’s remaining machines are vulnerable due to age or poor security, and Virginia isn’t alone in these issues. We explore why secure voting is so difficult to achieve, and we’ll check in on the Super Tuesday voting in Virginia.
