Conservatives use new tack to target voting machines

Braynard says the proposed alternative — “open-source” equipment — “removes the dangerous suspicion that election results are not valid.”

Braynard himself launched a group late last year called the Voter Integrity Project, which used public voter data to attempt to root out ostensibly fraudulent or suspicious votes in key swing states.

Braynard’s data was cited in multiple unsuccessful lawsuits seeking to overturn 2020 election results. But some of that data fell apart under closer examination.
