The french elections don't use any form of electronic voting system. The interference is given a passing mention with no source whatsoever, what is it talking about?

There's still some electronic voting system in France but it's only a minority at the moment: https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vote_%C3%A9lectronique#France

yes, this is a troubling statement.

I'd imagine there are some computerized systems between the manual counting and the actual result, but still.

To be clear: the allegation is that this was used to try to hack Macron’s campaign, not the election process itself. French election results are totally hand-counted; a “hack” isn’t possible.
