Elon Musk Drops MAJOR Announcement Ahead of 2024 Election

Elon Musk Drops MAJOR Announcement Ahead of 2024 Election

Elon Musk, the founder and CEO of Tesla, SpaceX, and Starlink, urged for significant voting reforms ahead of the 2024 election through his X platform over the weekend.

“We should eliminate electronic voting machines. The risk of being hacked by humans or AI, while small, is still too high,” Musk stated in a tweet that drew numerous supportive responses.

Musk’s comment was in reply to a post by independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who highlighted a recent issue with electronic voting machines in Puerto Rico.

“Puerto Rico’s primary elections just experienced hundreds of voting irregularities related to electronic voting machines, according to the Associated Press. Luckily, there was a paper trail so the problem was identified and vote tallies corrected,” Kennedy's post read, which included a link to the AP report.

Kennedy added, “What happens in jurisdictions where there is no paper trail? US citizens need to know that every one of their votes were counted, and that their elections cannot be hacked. We need to return to paper ballots to avoid electronic interference with elections. My administration will require paper ballots and we will guarantee honest and fair elections.”

Former President Donald Trump has similarly advocated for the exclusive use of paper ballots and restricting federal election voting to a single day, with some early voting exceptions for deployed military personnel and the infirm.

After his defeat in the 2020 election, Trump promoted the idea that electronic voting machines were possibly hacked, switching votes from him to Biden, although this was not substantiated in court. Interestingly, prior to the 2020 election, many Democrats had also voiced concerns about electronic voting machines, suggesting they could be hacked or tampered with to alter votes.

The X account KanekoaTheGreat shared a 20-minute compilation of Democrats expressing concerns about electronic voting machines, including:

Spread of Malware: If a county election management system is infected with malware, it can spread to USB drives, which then transfer it to voting machines, scanners, and ballot-marking devices throughout the county.
Programming Practices: Most U.S. election systems are programmed by local county officials or third-party vendors. They use previously used USB drives on internet-connected computers before plugging them into scanners, tabulators, and voting machines.
Outdated Systems: In 2019, the Associated Press reported that most of the 10,000 election jurisdictions, including swing states, were still using Windows 7 or older systems for ballot production, vote programming, counting, and reporting.
End of Windows 7 Support: Windows 7 reached its end of life on January 14, 2020, with Microsoft stopping technical support and security updates.

The account emphasized, “Hackers can potentially infiltrate elections through vulnerable USB cards, election management systems, and voting machines themselves. This underscores the urgent need for securing America’s election infrastructure.”


Republicans have also contended that other changes made before the 2020 election, which Democratic leaders attributed to the COVID-19 pandemic, could have affected the outcome. These changes included the widespread distribution of mail-in ballots to outdated voter registration lists, the addition of numerous unmonitored ballot drop boxes, and extensive ballot harvesting.

Though court cases were unsuccessful, Republican attorneys argued that these changes, implemented by governors, secretaries of state, and mayors, were illegal as they were not approved by state legislatures as required by the Constitution.
