Microsoft hopes its technology will help Americans trust voting again

""The American democracy is messy," said Richard Forno, assistant director of the Center for Cybersecurity at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.

Forno said it would be hard to devise a solution to securing all those pieces of the American election system without the help of big tech.
"Who else is going to do it? A technology company has the dollars and the people to do research and development and testing," Forno said, adding other solutions may come from academics and tech startups."
