1/6 HOW TO SET GOOD GUIDELINES FOR VOTING SYSTEMS
1) Consult with #cybersecurity experts
2) Do what they say
House bill #HR3351 says "the voter shall have the option to mark his or her ballot by hand." That's good. That's what the majority of cybersecurity experts recommend.
2/6 HOW NOT TO SET GUIDELINES FOR VOTING SYSTEMS
Senate bill #SecureElectionsAct sets up a panel of "independent experts on #ElectionSecurity" then fills it with ppl who are NOT #security experts. If you have to have heart surgery - do you want a surgeon or a hospital admin?
3/6 The #SecureElectionsAct has #bipartisan support, but contrary to current narrative it is NOT less intrusive to states - just less effective. It still sets up standards - but instead of specific ones, they are undefined & will be determined later by a panel of non-security ppl

Thread. BIG NEWS the Voluntary Voting System Guidelines 2.0 #cybersecurity working group is going to recommend NO #Wi-Fi & NO #Internet capability for #voting systems. This does not include #epollbooks but does include tabulators & election management systems. @secureourvotes
This is not a done deal, but it is a good step! The working group recommendations will be given to the Technical Guidelines Development Committee this Fri & they (the TGDC) may vote on these recs (could be up/down) then (supposedly) they go to the EAC for a public comment period.
Keep in mind that even if the EAC adopts these guidelines - they are still VOLUNTARY. States can choose to disregard them, or follow some & not others. Also the recommendation is not for the Wi-Fi capability to be removed, but instead permanently disabled due to cost of removal.
