@crinpa @StacyLee7 @georgia_vv @jjabbott @GovernorTomWolf Pennsylvania Democrats are not ur typical Democrats. Pennsylvania politics are corrupted - both parties. I still prefer PA Ds on the issues (obviously), but the corruption appears to me to be a huge problem in PA. If someone is on the take, you can’t count on party allegiance.1/

@sarahkendzior is right to push back against the “group think” that assumes #Mueller’s “got it.” What if he doesn’t got it where it matters most? What if he overlooks the complicity of Rs in Congress? We have no time for passive optimism. #ProtectOurVotes 1/
2/ No one in government, for example, is addressing the cellular modems that vendors installed in key swing stares starting in 2015. If we want them removed, as IT experts say they should be, we must push hard for it ourselves.
3/ Counties in many states—including swing states—are also flicking to touchscreen #BarcodeBalloting systems, even though independent cybersecurity experts unanimously advise against them and instead recommend hand marked paper ballots.

This is a video protest against #BarcodeBalloting, which Brian Kemp hopes to force on Georgia voters, even tho all independent IT election experts advise against it & recommend #handmarked #paperballots instead. If ur a GA voter & want to participate, pls DM me ur photo. TY! 1/
2/ Here’s an article I wrote for @whowhatwhy explaining the distinction between #BarcodeBalloting (which generates computer marked ballots w/ barcodes) and hand marked paper ballots, and why it matters. whowhatwhy.org/2019/01/11/geo…
3/ I’m making this video with the graphics expertise of @JimHWhitelaw. If you DM me your photo, he will add the barcode and writing. The final video will end with a call for hand marked paper ballots & will include music if it works out technically.

Are there any more Georgia voters who would like to send in an image to add? We could also use a bit more diversity. When done, it will include music as well. Thanks!! #ProtectOurVotes
Graphics by @JimHWhitelaw!
If you are an interested Georgia voter, pls DM your image to me and @JimHWhitelaw will add the barcode and lettering. Here is an article I wrote re: #BarcodeBalloting in Georgia. TY! whowhatwhy.org/2019/01/11/geo…

Calling all Georgia voters! I’m making a GIF to spread awareness about the dangers of #BarcodeBalloting on Twitter and perhaps FB. It will be a continuous loop of GA voters in the style of the images below and with the same message. I will not include anyone’s name. 1/
I have 10 images so far and would like about ten more if possible. Pls DM me your photo of you are a GA voter and are interested. 2/
Here is an article I wrote for @whowhatwhy that explains the importance of stopping #BarcodeBalloting. Georgia is poised to lose this fight if it doesn’t get some national attention ASAP. I’m hoping these stark images can help. Thank you. whowhatwhy.org/2019/01/11/geo… 3/

Ohio’s most populous county chooses insecure #BarcodeBalloting system that all independent cybersecurity experts recommend against. Rejects #handmarked #paperballots, which all such experts recommend. via ⁦@LuluFriesdatdispatch.com/news/20181127/… 1/ dispatch.com/news/20181127/…

Another article that fails to address the critical distinction between #BarcodeBalloting (technically a “paper-based system”) and HAND MARKED paper ballots. @USAToday must do better!! 1/
