Dear @senatemajldr: Throwing wads of $$$ at opaque & corrupt voting-system vendors that donated to your campaign does NOT constitute meaningful election-security reform. Thread. cc: @SenSchumer @SenatorLeahy @ChrisCoons 1/
Election-security funding must be tied to election-security requirements (or it isn’t really election security funding):

HAND MARKED paper ballots 4 most voters

ROBUST manual audits

A ban on internet connectivity & remote access

Backup paper voter lists at polling places. 2/

“Vital election equipment in at least 7 WI counties has been connected to the internet, in some cases for nearly a year at a time, despite WI elections officials & voting machine vendors repeatedly claiming the devices cannot be hacked bc they are not connected to the web.” 2/
“A group of election security experts who went looking for vulnerabilities to check claims of vendors found the [internet] connections & warned @WI_Elections ahead of the 2018 midterm elections. But state officials failed to notify all but one of the counties.” 3/

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/
