This is a major victory bc it means we are successfully exposing the recklessness of rejecting #HandmarkedPaperBallots in favor of machine-marked summary cards from vendors’ insecure “universal use” barcode ballot marking devices & hybrids, which the #SAFEAct would ban. 1/
It also shows that we have successfully exposed as unacceptable ES&S’s installation of wireless modems in election equipment, which it began doing in 2015. This too would be banned under the #SAFEAct. 2/
Yes, I get that McConnell may not bring it to the floor. But we would be negligent to not even try. So we will try & in doing so educate a TON of people—include decision makers at the state and county level—about the election-security best practices embodied in the Act. 3/

This is what vendors & others misleadingly call a “paper ballot backup.” It’s hackable junk marked by an insecure ballot marking device. Vendors love them bc BMDs are expensive. We need #HandmarkedPaperBallots, not more corruption of our election system by profit-minded vendors.
The ES&S ExpressVote XL (discussed in @SEGreenhalgh’s thread,above) is both a barcode voting system and a hybrid voting system. The #SAFEAct, which passed the House today bans both barcode voting systems AND hybrid voting systems. Thank your House representative today! 1/

Our leaders must do more than say “PAVEAct.” They must explain what it would do & why it matters so that (a) even Republican voters question why Mitch won’t put it up for a vote; & (b) voters know what to demand from local officials too. @GeorgeLakoff 1/
2/ Our leaders need training in negotiations it seems. You can’t create pressure or change w/o leaders providing a little bit of detail as to what is wrong and what is needed.

Democrats should publicly SHAME Republicans for wanting to keep remote access and wireless modems in election equipment. Everyone should be able to understand why this is outrageous. Why won’t Democrats even try to shame them on this?! 3/

Miami County, Kansas to purchase touchscreen ballot marking devices that put voters’ selections into an unverifiable barcode & cannot be reliably audited. The vendor is ES&S, which has donated $30K to the GOP since 2013. #BanBarcodeVoting 1/ republic-online.com/news/local_new…
Not only that, these are the “hybrid” version of the ES&S ExpressVote, which can mark an entirely fraudulent paper ballot AFTER it’s been cast by the voter. I wrote about these dangerous “hybrids” here: salon.com/2019/03/28/new… 2/
ES&S and it’s donations to the GOP— and the dangers of barcode voting & hybrids— are discussed in my article in post 2, not in the article in post 1.
