OMG. As if barcode voting & “hybrids” weren’t bad enough, the ExpressVote XL barcode hybrid voting system has two USB ports! This dangerous machine is spreading like a virus throughout the US, including counties in swing states like PA. 1/
3/ “New ‘hybrid’ voting system can change paper ballot after it's been cast”

“Paper ballots are safe only if marked by hand, not by machine”…

Please tell your members of Congress, state lawmakers, and state and county election officials that we need #HandMarkedPaperBallots as a primary voting system in 2020.

2/ Please tell them NO to touchscreen voting machines, including the paperless kind and the kind with useless so-called "Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trails."…
3/ Tell them NO to barcoded paper summary cards--which vendors have convinced everyone to call "paper ballots"--marked by hackable ballot marking devices (a new type of touchscreen system taking the country by storm). Humans can't read barcodes!

New York! Experts say that, due to a design flaw, the Dominion ICE “Hybrid” voting system can add fake votes to paper ballots after they are cast. Tell @NYSBOE to #ICEtheICE and use #HandMarkedPaperBallots instead. Thank you. #ProtectOurVotes

Update: TY to the MANY concerned New York voters who emailed @NYSBOE to express concern about the Dominion ICE voting system. By my calculations at least SEVENTY wrote in, but the Board misleadingly characterized it as “a few” & decided w/ no debate that the ICE is just fine. 1/
2/ If you sent such an email, and would like us to post it on the #SmartElections website, pls send it via the Contact Us link here:
3/ The next @NYSBOE meeting is June 6, and we will undoubtedly have further action items in anticipation of that meeting. Please stay tuned. And thanks again for your efforts!

@TLBsStory @lizlhoward @eddieperezTX @philipbstark @umbernhard @mcranechilders 1. Debunk the myth of “decentralization” (ES&S & Dominion = 80 % US election equipment).
2. ES&S donated $30K to help elect Republicans.
3. Dominion just hired Pelosi’s former longtime aid as a lobbyist.
4. Equipment overview

@TLBsStory @lizlhoward @eddieperezTX @philipbstark @umbernhard @mcranechilders 5. Vote tallies CAN be hacked via the internet due to centralized election mgmt systems & online reporting system.
6. ES&S installed remote access software in election mgmt systems in 300 jurisdictions it won’t identify. Diebold, which ES&S acquired in 2009, did this too.

@TLBsStory @lizlhoward @eddieperezTX @philipbstark @umbernhard @mcranechilders 7. Dominion won’t say whether it installed remote access, which suggests it probably did.
8. ES&S installed cellular modems in ballot scanners in WI, FL, & IL starting in 2015, an invitation to man-in-the-middle hacks (per IT expert Appel).

Cybersecurity experts recommend #HandMarkedPaperBallots (counted by hand or on scanners).

But some NY officials want the Dominion ICE voting system to mark paper ballots for voters, even tho experts say it can change the paper ballot after it’s cast.… 1/
2/ In March, based on the concerns of cybersecurity experts, the New York State Board of Elections requested reexamination of the state’s certification of the Dominion ICE.…
3/ The fate of the Dominion ICE in New York will likely affect the fate of ES&S’s ExpressVote XL, as experts say it suffers from the exact same design flaw.…

🚨 New York! The NY Elections Bd votes TOMORROW on whether to decertify the Dominion ICE Hybrid voting system. Email them at & ask that they vote YES on decertification bc, w/ the ICE, manual audits can’t confirm election outcomes! Reply ✅. TY! 1/
