On Thursday, a Colorado man was arrested for allegedly tampering in a voting machine. A 31-year old man was accused of committing a crime in voting when he placed a USB thumb drive inside a voting machine.
Richard Patton (Pueblo) was taken into custody without incident for allegedly committing a crime against the voter during the primary election in Juni.
“On June 28, the sound of a vote booth was heard by poll workers. CBS News reported that the noises were made by a poll worker who went to clean the machine. They saw an error message and notified supervisors. According to the secretary’s offices, “Tamper evident seals on the machine seemed to have been disturbed.” The machine was immediately taken from service and investigated.”
ABC News reported that “Electoral officials in Colorado use locks, tamper-evident seals, and keys on voting equipment to indicate if it has been accessed.” If someone tries to alter them, trigger alerts render the machine inoperable.
The authorities in Pueblo were notified of a possible breach to the voting system at a Pueblo voting station.
