So Russia has reportedly moved on from Hacking our Election Infrastructure. Moving on to other things. Don’t believe it. They are everywhere in our Election System. They know the importance of the Midterms.
Parts of an operation linked to Russian military intelligence targeting the US Senate and conservative think tanks were thwarted last week. The domains were associated with the Russian government and known as Strontium, or alternatively Fancy Bear or APT28

Georgia to close 75% of Black Counties Precincts!! Precincts that were all open during the Primaries. They know they have a problem. Even with the Election machines that give suspect results they know they need more help.
If this stands we need to start a major effort to provide transportation in this county. We will need drivers, volunteers and people to help distribute notices and spread the word.
More than 250 Trump Organization Subdomains are in Communication with Computers in Russia!!
The Trump Organization, like most large organizations, has a lot of domains registered to it. Let's take a look.

Remote Access Software used by ES&S Voting. They finally tell the truth. At least some of it. Thank you to @KimZetter for pursuing her initial story from February. I am afraid we are missing the bigger point here.
States have given over their Election Systems to a myriad of Private Companies. The States in many cases have absolutely no idea what is happening with their Elections.
Michigan, ES&S and the Voting Machines that couldn’t count!!
Why are States Buying and Using Machines that don’t pass testing?
It is infuriating!!
All along there have been problems with electronic voting. Again and again election officials and observers have spoken up, only to be ignored.

Maryland Voter Registration System runs on Russian Owned Software! The biggest problem here is that they never knew it. How is that possible? The States have no idea who is behind the companies they give the Elections over to.
We are going to be dropping a ton of research on exactly this. Why do States willfully do this. Would a state actually know if something went bad ? Let's talk more about Spearphishing.
We are not done with our story of the Trump Subdomains pointing to St. Petersburg Russia.
Why we don’t think they were there by accident or hack.
These subdomains were not part of the documented GoDaddy "Shadow Domain" exploits. Or any other exploit or hack.

Another look back to what we knew last year about Russia's attempt to hack Voter Registration systems.
In Illinois, investigators found evidence that cyber intruders tried to delete or alter voter data. The hackers accessed software designed to be used by poll workers on Election Day, and in at least one state accessed a campaign finance database

What we knew about Russia Hacking of State Election Websites. This from Ruben Major from May. Illinois not just targeted but hacked hard.
The report indicated that the SBE website was hit a massive number of 5 times per second 24 hours per day. The Board also concluded that “various IVRS passwords were compromised.”
