ES&S harden its voting machines from hackers

Just who in their right-minds connects a voting machine directly to the Internet? Election Systems and Software (ES&S) that's who, who sometime back acquired Diebold’s voting machine division ‘Premier Election Solutions’. What is the make of hardware and software that these voting products run on?

ES&S .. was expanding its work with .. Homeland Security .. includes the installation of advanced threat monitoring and network security monitoring

Is it wise giving the state security apparatus full control over the voting process, especially as there is no paper trail. If a malicous actor were to come to power, s/he could manipulate the vote in his/her favour.
