2. We're asking @CASOSvote @AlexPadilla4CA & LA Supervisors @HildaSolis @mridleythomas @SheilaKuehl @SupJaniceHahn @kathrynbarger to repair the dangerous risky #Security flaws in the #VSAP system prior to any further certification. Petition here… #LAVotes
3. What is wrong with the "Voting Solutions for All People?" It sounds so perfect. If only the system was as good as the name. A coalition of good govt groups signed a letter detailing some of the problems that need to be addressed:… #LAVotes #SecurityFail

Thread 1.
#LosAngeles Done listening to 3 hours of testimony & public comments about the LA Voting System. Incredible that in all that time not a single member of the public testified with any kind of enthusiasm for the voting system. #VSAP #SecurityFail #LaVotes #SMARTelections
2. Instead ppl noted:

- The method that #security experts recommend: #HandMarkedPaperBallots is not being offered.
- the system is tabulating #QRcodes, something banned in CO
3. I noted: The new system makes it impossible to audit and/or recount. A group that wanted to recount a race that was won by 16 votes was unable to - because of the cost estimate of 200k due to the way the new system stores ballots.… #DontCertifyVSAP

.@SupJaniceHahn rightly has called for an INDEPENDENT investigation into the disastrous election conducted on LA's VSAP BMD system, warning that she has lost confidence in LA County's elections. This is serious. In Northampton, PA the county supervisors voted unanimously...1/
..."no confidence" in the Expressvote XL BMD system. At a time when we need to be engendering trust and confidence in our election system, for the love of pete, why would jurisdictions want to buy BMD voting systems that cost orders of magnitude more than hand-marked paper...2/
...ballots when they diminish voter confidence in addition to all the other disadvantages of all BMD voting systems? #VSAP's all BMD model is clearly a failed model and should not be pursued. LA needs to explore the best ways to provide pre-printed, hand-marked paper ballots...3/

1/ Election officials & the media can stop saying that there is "No evidence that Russians changed vote tallies"…
2/ Because now there IS evidence that vote totals may have been affected. "A Georgia election server contains evidence that it was possibly hacked before the 2016 presidential election ... according to an election security expert."…
3/ "The incident, which occurred in late 2014...not only calls into question the integrity of Georgia’s voting machines during critical elections, but raises new questions about whether attackers were able to manipulate election data & voter info through the compromised server."
