Virginia Loudoun County Voting Machines Challenge

Kasperek v. Brown

Lawsuit filed by two Loudoun County voters against members of the Loudoun County Electoral Board, registrars and supervisors challenging the county’s use of electronic voting equipment. The plaintiffs allege that the defendants “willingly integrated noncompliant and therefore deliberately and illegally certified ‘electronic voting equipment’” that is “likely infected with malware of foreign and domestic origin.” The plaintiffs argue, among many baseless and conspiracy ridden claims, that the challenged voting equipment was “illegally certified” for use in both the 2020 and 2021 elections, resulting in “unsecure, uncertifiable, and inaccurate election results in [these] elections,” and will also affect the “pending 2022 elections.” The complaint further alleges that the challenged voting equipment resulted in “election fraud,” rendering the 2020 and 2021 election results “null and void.” Furthermore, the plaintiffs contend that the electronic voting equipment “deliberately” exposed the plaintiffs and other voters’ private voter information. The plaintiffs argue that because the county rejected multiple requests to “examine claims of malefences,” an investigation is needed to “forensically examine all illegally certified equipment and log history.”  The plaintiffs request that the court prohibit Loudoun County from using “uncertified and illegal” voting equipment for the 2022 election that allegedly violates state and federal law and the 14th Amendment by diluting the plaintiffs’ “legitimate votes.” They also ask the court to require Loudoun County to hand count paper ballots in future elections. 

On Jan. 6, 2023, the court dismissed the lawsuit.
