Another PA county just picked the ExpressVote XL, the same ES&S barcode hybrid voting system chosen by Philly. The XL routes machine-marked paper ballots under the printer head AFTER they are cast. It puts votes into barcodes. ⁦⁦⁦@TomWolfPA⁩ 1/ cumberlink.com/news/local/gov…
2/ The #SAFEAct, which just passed the House, would BAN dangerous barcode hybrid systems like the ExpressVote XL.

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/

Dear @SpeakerPelosi: if you’re going to bet everything on 2020, you must do more to secure our elections, including subpoenaing ES&S & other vendors to disclose where they installed remote access software & cellular modems & publicly demanding their removal. @PhilaController 1/
I copied @PhilaController bc she’s the ONLY government leader of which I’m aware who has taken the necessary step to subpoena documents re: the dangerous new voting systems from ES&S that some jurisdictions, including @PhillyVotes, insist on buying. She needs your support. 2/
And whether you can PASS meaningful election-security legislation or not, you can & must WARN the public of these horrible new systems & the vendors’ installation of dangerous remote access software & wireless modems. Meaningful change is impossible if people are uninformed. 3/

“The nation's top voting machine maker [ES&S] has admitted in a letter to a federal lawmaker that the company installed REMOTE-ACCESS SOFTWARE on election-management systems it sold over a period of six years...” - By @KimZetter, 7/17/18 1/ motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/…
This revelation raises “questions about the security of those systems AND THE INTEGRITY OF ELECTIONS THAT WERE CONDUCTED WITH THEM,” which would include the 2016 presidential election! 2/
“Election-management systems are not the voting terminals that voters use to cast their ballots, but are just as critical: they ... tabulate final results aggregated from voting machines.” 3/

Two new “Hybrid” voting systems are taking the country by storm: the ES&S ExpressVote XL and the Dominion ICE.

Experts say these systems can change paper ballots after they are cast.

2/ ES&S's ExpressVote XL "Hybrid" voting system, which @PhillyVotes selected, is a dangerous system that experts say can change paper ballots after they've been cast. They should never have chosen it. #EXPELtheXL

3/ The other dangerous "Hybrid" voting system that to which jurisdictions are flocking is the Dominion Image Cast Evolution (ICE). #ICEtheICE

Per Mueller's report, Russia gained "access to the NETWORK of at least one Florida county...” nytimes.com/2019/04/26/us/…

As confirmed by Jeremy Bash 7:43, this broad statement suggests the POTENTIAL that VOTE TALLIES WERE ALTERED!

"I think we all have been worried about the hacking of voting machines. But what this story suggests is the potential for hacking the [Florida] VOTE TABULATION SYSTEMS, where the votes are tallied & how the results are displayed. " - Jeremy Bash, 7:43 msnbc.com/11th-hour/watc… 2/
3/ Indeed, as I've emphasized again and again, all electronic vote tallies can be hacked, even if the voting machines themselves aren't connected to the internet, because all voting machines & scanners are programmed b4 each election on centralized election management systems...
