             Despite the security gaps in the software "PC choice", the IT service providers of the municipalities "could not find any special incidents" at the Bundestag elections. There were almost no disturbances.
            

        

        The nationwide concentration of the municipal IT service provider Vitako, despite the fear of tampering in the face of the flawless security gaps discovered in early September in the widely used evaluation software PC election, drew a positive conclusion from the 2017 Bundestag election from a technical point of view. There had been no "special incidents" in the counting of the votes and the results of the results. Almost nowhere had "come to technical or other disturbances".
"Prepared for all eventualities" The election performance was particularly sensitive this year, the connected IT service centers were aware of this. This was just as much the case for manipulation incidents in other countries as in "alleged weaknesses of the used software 'PC choice'". Accordingly, municipal suppliers "had prepared themselves for all eventualities and followed the procedures with particular attention". The election results were partly verified by telephone. To this end, experts had come to grips with the problem with PC-choice.
The controversial product of the Aachen "Vote iT" and the program Votemanager, which was also offered by the company, covered just under 66 per cent of German residents, according to Vitako. The mother house "Regio iT" has announced that both the decentralized operation of PC-choice in the municipalities as well as the central use of the complementary software "worked perfectly" in all partner data centers. Furthermore, the counting and evaluation programs Meso and Vois-Meso were used by HSH, OK.Wahl by the AKDB, Voteplus by WRS, Lewis KM-Ewo by the data center Baden-Württemberg or WinWVIS by the KIVBF.
Dances on several weddings According to the association, the range of the individual circles to be managed by the individual service providers was between four and several hundred. Accordingly, many employees were employed by Sunday night, while around 150 technicians and other employees were at Dataport in the north. In some cases, the houses would have had to dance at the same time on several weddings, as there were an additional 16 mayor elections and three citizens' decisions in Baden-Württemberg, and a decision in Berlin about Tegel Airport in Berlin.
In the capital, "there were delays in data collection and transmission from the district offices to the Berlin-Brandenburg Office for Statistics", admitted Vitako. In the mirror, the incident read somewhat more dramatically, there was talk of IT problems at the country-specific service center, which "for Wahlchaos in Berlin" worried. The cloud server, on which the polling stations should record the results, had failed over an hour.
Many letter-pickers Some data centers also reported "increased cyber-attacks in connection with the online application for letter-selection documents", the association reported. This was mainly due to the time "when global access was released". At the KDRS in the Stuttgart area alone, nearly 30 percent of the electoral cards were applied for via the Internet. At the KIVBF in Karlsruhe three million election documents had been handed over. In Magdeburg, the share of the voters was particularly high at 25 percent.
The political result of the election shows for Vitako's managing director Ralf Resch at the same time that politics and the economy would have to better represent the opportunities of digitization so that no one feels dependent. Despite e-government, the analogue contact with administrative staff was to be maintained, while digital services should be further developed.
