A federal judge has ruled that Georgia must stop using its current outdated machines after this year. That means new voting machines should roll out just in time for the 20/20 elections. The ruling comes after a lawsuit filed by a group asking for paper ballots to be used in the upcoming elections this year.
The group claimed that the current machines used in Georgia are vulnerable to cyberattacks. The judge denied that request, but ruled that the machines must be retired before the 2020 Presidential Primary. The Georgia Secretary of State said the new election technology will cost about $107 million.
