Some voting machines produced by Dominion Voting Systems can connect to the Internet, the company’s CEO said Tuesday.
“For the few jurisdictions, less than one percent of our customer base, an external cellular modem is required,” CEO John Poulos told legislators during a state Senate committee hearing in Michigan.
An external modem sits outside a device and allows Internet access.
A Dominion contractor and a poll challenger told The Epoch Times last month that voting machines at the TCF Center in Detroit, used in the Nov. 3 election, were connected to the Internet.
Melissa Carone, the contractor, said she was given a binder that included information about how “the machines were connected to the Wi-Fi.”
Patrick Colbeck, a former state senator who served as a poll challenger, said machines in the center appeared to be connected to the Internet.
“All the tabulator computers were connected via Ethernet cables to a network router. And that router, in turn, was connected to another router that was connected to the adjudicators. Those were connected to another router/firewall which was connected to the Internet, which was connected to the local data center,” Colbeck told The Epoch Times.
“Anybody who understands IT knows that if one computer is connected on a network to the Internet, all the computers on that network are connected to the Internet. And I know that the local data center was connected to the other networks.”
A spokeswoman for the Detroit Elections Department didn’t respond to a request for comment.
Poulos said adjudicators and tabulators at the TCF Center do not have Ethernet access. He then said they do have an RJ45 connector to connect to other computers, “through a switch that is not connected to the outside world.”
Phil Waldron, a online security expert and retired Army colonel, told lawmakers in Michigan earlier this month that the operator’s manual for poll workers includes an entire page that shows “how and when to connect and what selectors to connect to servers and to routers, so it is connected to the Internet.”
