Republican voters continue to be concerned about the use of electronic voting machines. Rasmussen Reports released results from a national phone and online survey that shows 39 percent of likely voters believe electronic voting machines make it easier to cheat.

Nineteen percent said they think machines make it harder to cheat. Thirty-three percent said electronic voting machines do not make much difference in election cheating.

Fifty-four percent of Republicans believe electronic voting machines make it easier to cheat. Thirty percent of Democrats and 34 percent of unaffiliated voters agree.

Cybersecurity experts told NBC News in 2020 that voting systems connected to the Internet may be vulnerable to hackers. Sixty-three percent of likely voters said they’re concerned electronic voting machines may be monitored remotely through Internet connections during voting. That includes 38 percent who said they are very concerned. Thirty-four percent said they aren’t concerned about Internet-connected voting machines being monitored, including 13 percent who are not at all concerned.
