A Georgia citizen discovered a vulnerability with the state’s voter database, The Associated Press reports. The flaw involves the database used to check in voters at the polls. Richard Wright found anyone with access to a voter’s personal information has the ability to change the voter’s record.

Meanwhile, the Boston Globe reports on hackers’ attempts to compromise election networks across the country prior to the midterm elections.
