Elections security: Federal help or power grab?

Politico has the article Elections security: Federal help or power grab?

The federal government wants to help states keep hackers from manipulating the November election, amid growing fears that the U.S. political system is vulnerable.

This article and the national discussion so badly misses the whole point about election security. It is not the possible tampering by Russia that we should fear, It is the actual tampering by the oligarchs and their hired politicians that we should fear. There is a simple solution that I have proposed that would solve the problem without very much federal government intervention, except to enact some minimal anti-tampering requirements for the software/hardware that will pass muster for an election to be safe.

See my previous post Standardize Electronic Voting Technology. Notice the federal agency that I think is best to take on this issue.
