Microsoft ElectionGuard software gets first test in Fulton, Wisconsin

People in the small Wisconsin town of Fulton are the first to try out software Microsoft designed to confirm that votes are being properly counted. On Tuesday, Fulton residents are using the technology while choosing who will join the local school board and hold a seat on Wisconsin’s state supreme court.

Microsoft’s ElectionGuard software can count votes electronically while providing a separate means for voters to confirm that their votes are included in tallies, Tom Burt, Microsoft’s corporate vice president for customer security and trust, said Thursday.

Votes themselves are encrypted using a technique developed by Microsoft Research, so that nobody can see how an individual voted, Burt explained in a media briefing at company headquarters in Redmond, Washington. After a person votes, a printer next to the voting device generates a piece of paper, which the voter can view to make sure the votes were recorded properly and then drop into the ballot box. The paper also shows an online location that voters can look at later to make sure their vote was counted, although this web site doesn’t show who they voted for, he said.

The ElectionGuard technology won’t be responsible for tallying votes in the Wisconsin primary election, however. Election officials will still count paper votes for the primary, a Wisconsin Elections Commission spokesperson told CNBC on Tuesday. It is technologically possible for a jurisdiction to rely on the software’s digital counts and then fall back to paper ballots for verification, but the systems featuring Microsoft technology that people are using in Fulton on Tuesday have not been certified with the state, the spokesperson said.

Microsoft said ElectionGuard won’t be material to the company’s business, since it’s free to use, and that the company has no intention of entering the voting-hardware market. It’s simply meant to help restore people’s faith in voting, the company said.

If it works, it could make Microsoft look like it’s helping with the democratic process. That would be in contrast to companies such as Facebook and Twitter, which have seen their technology used for political aims in ways they say they never intended.

As a first step, Microsoft worked with state, county and town election officials and nonprofit voting machine company VotingWorks to embed ElectionGuard into voting devices that people are using in Fulton, which has a population of 3,257.

The small test market is meant simply to give Microsoft feedback. The company said it wants to see if voters like the experience and to make sure everything works as it should.

The state chose Fulton because counting ballots there wouldn’t be too difficult, but there would also be a large enough sample size to see what people think of the technology, the Wisconsin election spokesman said.

Microsoft is eager to get the technology more widely adopted, if not in time for the 2020 presidential elections, then maybe in time for the midterm elections in 2022, Burt said.

“The response from all three principal vendors [of voting devices] has been positive, and we’re working with all of them,” Burt said.

Microsoft has even received interest in ElectionGuard from outside the U.S., including from a developer in Europe who’s interested in the technology for city elections, Burt said.

“We may see this tech incorporated in nationwide or very large elections outside the United States even before it’s incorporated inside the United States,” he said.

Boeing to inspect undelivered 737 Maxes for foreign object debris

Published

on

By


Boeing has told employees that it discovered foreign-object debris in fuel tanks of “several” 737 Max planes the manufacturer has in storage, CNBC learned Tuesday.

Foreign object debris “is absolutely unacceptable,” Boeing Commercial Airplanes executive Mark Jenks, a vice president and general manager of the 737 program and Renton production facility, according to the company’s website, said in a note to employees. “One escape is one too many.

“With your help and focus, we will eliminate FOD from our production system,” he wrote.

The company plans to investigate the foreign objects in the tanks and said that the discovery won’t impact the plane’s return to service.

“The success of this initiative is dependent on you. We need our entire team to make this a priority. Thank you for your commitment to put safety, quality and integrity into everything we do,” Jenks wrote.

The Federal Aviation Administration said it was aware that Boeing “is conducting a voluntary” inspection for debris in the undelivered aircraft “as part of the company’s ongoing efforts to ensure manufacturing quality.”

“The agency increased its surveillance based on initial inspection reports and will take further action based on the findings,” the agency said in a statement.

Boeing also plans to inspect all undelivered 737 Max planes. Boeing produced some 400 Max planes since the grounding last year until it halted production last month. The company suspended delivery of the new planes after regulators grounded them worldwide in March after two fatal crashes — in Indonesia in October 2018 and in Ethiopia less than five months later — killed all 346 people on the two flights.

While regulators and Boeing work on resolving issues with the Max that still need to be fixed, no U.S. carrier currently expects the planes to return in time for most of the peak summer travel season.

United Airlines pulled the Max from its schedule until Sept. 4. Meanwhile Southwest Airlines, which had operated more Max planes than any other U.S. airline, removed the jetliners from its schedules through Aug. 10 and American Airlines adjusted its schedules to remove the Max through Aug. 17.
