The #PAVEAct bans #BarcodeVoting, #HybridVoting, & wireless & internet connections. I wish it went further too (#PaperVoterRolls as backups, preservation of digital images, publication of precinct totals). But it’s by far the best we have. Our only chance. Pls support it. TY! 1/
2/ We can advocate some of these other points in the meantime. HR 1 is not as good bc it allows #BarcodeVoting & #HybridVoting & wireless & internet connections. All of these things are very dangerous.
3/ This is one of my barcode voting pieces. whowhatwhy.org/2019/01/11/geo…

@SenKamalaHarris Altho @KamalaHarris wasn’t specific, she’s referring to the new #PAVEAct, which:
*Gives voters the right to #HandMarkedPaperBallots
* Bans machine-marked barcoded paper ballots from hackable ballot marking devices & Hybrids
* Bans DREs
*.Requires manual Risk Limiting Audits! 1/
@SenKamalaHarris @KamalaHarris 3/ And thank you to @RonWyden, who took the laboring oar on the #PAVEAct!

Thank you, @Elaijuh - Why won’t you report that this is a #BarcodeVoting system that Pennsylvania’s highly touted “Blue Ribbon” election security commission recommended against? We’ve discussed before & still nothing...1/
2/ I believe I’ve sent you the Blue Ribbon Commission report before, but here it is again w/ a screenshot about barcode voting. Thank you. @PAAuditorGen @RebeccaRhynhart @ChrisDeluzio @PittCyber

3/ The National Academies also recommends against systems, such as the ExpressVote XL (chosen by @PhillyVotes) that “print only selections with abbreviated names/descriptions of the contests,” calling them “virtually unusable for verifying voter intent.” nap.edu/read/25120/cha…

“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/

Thank you @RebeccaRhynhart for standing by your convictions. We could use a lot more of that lately. #ProtectOurVotes 1/

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

NO! The Secure Elections Act would allow the new hybrid voting systems that, per experts, can add fake votes 2 paper ballots after they are cast! Your time wld be better spent WARNING the public about Hybrids & #BarcodeVoting #HandMarkedPaperBallots

Cybersecurity experts recommend #HandmarkedPaperBallots, not the machine-marked barcoded kind from hackable machines!

This is how to do it! Because the Georgia senate refuses to allow a full hearing on Brian Kemps’s & ES&S’s dangerous #BarcodeVoting bill, Stacey Abrams’s @fairfightaction will hold its own hearing from 6-8 pm. tomorrow. The media shld be all over this! @chrislhayes #HB316 #gapol
1/ Independent cybersecurity experts unanimously recommend #HandMarkedPaperBallots as a primary voting system, not the machine-marked barcoded kind that corrupt election officials like Brian Kemp are pushing. whowhatwhy.org/2019/01/11/geo…

I wrote about the dangers of #BarcodeVoting a year ago & many times since. Altho I’m thrilled @ericgeller & @VerifiedVoting have finally sounded the alarm, we should all ask what took so long & why is the TV media still silent?! @stevebenen 1/
2/ By waiting so long to sound the alarm, the national media & @VerifiedVoting have allowed the vendor propaganda—that INSECURE machine-marked barcoded printouts are “secure”—to settle in. Overcoming this propaganda will require significant repetition.
3/ I say this based on SCIENCE. No one can expect that a few articles and letters will suffice now to undue the significant damage wrought by allowing vendors to misleadingly promote crappy barcoded printouts as “paper ballots” again and again and again.

Too many of us are wasting time on the #MuellerIsComing fantasy, as GA, PA, WI, TN, AR, NJ, KY, TX, KS, DE, & LA buy insecure #BarcodeVoting systems that will make it impossible to know if elections R stolen. We are throwing it away. @repjohnlewis @OfficialCBC @RepMaxineWaters 1/
2/ Georgia is voting this week. whowhatwhy.org/2019/01/11/geo…
3/ Philly already voted for #barcodevoting last week. This is my article that tried & failed to stop this travesty. salon.com/2019/02/16/phi…

This is a lie. Philly chose a #BarcodeVoting system, even tho: (a) PA’s Blue Ribbon Commission recommended against barcode voting in its election-security report, & (b) the system has major accessibility problems. cc: @PAStateDept @Commish_Schmidt @ChrisDeluzio @PAAuditorGen 1/
2/ The system Philly chose is the ExpressVote XL. This is a ballot marking device that generates a machine-marked printout with a barcode & text. The barcode which humans can’t read & thus can’t verify is the only thing counted as your vote.
3/ Because there is no universal definition of “paper ballot,” vendors & corrupt election officials misleadingly refer to these barcoded paper printouts as “paper ballots.” See how @PhillyVotes did that here? Tricky, huh?

Wrong again, @beckerdavidj! As @PittCyber’s own @chrisdeluzio will be happy to discuss with u, the Blue Ribbon Commission’s election security report specifically recommends against #BarcodeVoting systems. Philly selected ES&S’s ExpressVote XL, which is a barcode voting system. 1/
2/ Apparently you skipped the end notes to the report. @PAAuditorGen cyber.pitt.edu/sites/default/…
3/ @ericgeller - stand strong. You were right. @beckerdavidj was wrong.

Why did @IvankaTrump get a voting machine trademark from China, why did she meet with Brian Kemp on the same day as Georgia’s contentious hearing re: controversial new voting equipment, & where is the effing media?! @stevebenen @henryrbutler @AliVelshi @JoyAnnReid #gapol 1/

The ExpressVote XL is a #BarcodeVoting system & thus conflicts with the election-security recommendations of PA’s own Blue Ribbon Commission, which advises against barcode voting. But u already knew that. (See end notes 49, 53) cyber.pitt.edu/sites/default/… 1/
The ExpressVote XL is also a ballot marking devices and thus conflicts with the recommendation of these 24 independent cybersecurity experts who recommend against BMDs as a primary voting system. drive.google.com/file/d/1O05dCw… 2/
Who are these alleged “security experts” that recommended this system? Are u referring to the vendor that just sold you this insecure hunk of junk? 3/

It’s almost as if people bled & died for the right to vote only to have #BarcodeBrian, #BarcodeBrad, & #BarcodeBarry force Georgia voters to use an insecure #BarcodeVoting system that will allow votes to be stolen without detection. cc: @flemingbarrya @BrianKempGA @BradForGASOS

Dear @KamalaHarris: If you don’t specify “hand marked” paper ballots, we will be stuck with the machine-marked barcoded kind from hackable ballot marking devices that ALL independent cybersecurity experts advise against! 1/ #HandMarkedPaperBallots
The problem is that there is no universal definition of “paper ballots.” Vendors & their surrogates have taken advantage of this ambiguity to characterize machine-marked barcoded printouts from hackable ballot marking devices as “paper ballots”. 2/
3/ As explained in this thread to a reporter in Philly, which is poised to buy such a #BarcodeVoting system (which some misleadingly call a “paper ballot” system), all independent cybersecurity election experts recommend against such systems!

Dear @Elaijuh: TY for ur article re: the controversy surrounding Philly’s anticipated new voting system. But on the issue of security, it is not just “some” independent cybersecurity experts who advise against #BarcodeVoting. It is ALL of them. 1/ philly.com/politics/phila…
2/ The ES&S ExpressVote XL at the heart of this controversy is a #BarcodeVoting system. In other words, it is a ballot marking device that produces a machine-marked printout with both text and a barcode. The barcode is the only part of the printout counted as ur vote.
3/ PA’s own election security report prepared by a bipartisan Blue Ribbon Commission recommends against #BarcodeVoting 2x in endnotes 49 & 53! @ChrisDeluzio @PAAuditorGen cyber.pitt.edu/sites/default/…

Dear producers of @maddow: Why won’t u report that jurisdictions like Georgia & Philadelphia are buying insecure #BarcodeVoting systems that all independent IT experts recommend against?! Georgia hearing is TODAY. Philly may vote TOMORROW. @stevebenen @adallos @wisewinston 1/
2/ Letter from 23 experts, many or most of them cyber experts, recommending #HandMarkedPaperBallots and advising against machine-marked barcoded paper printouts from insecure touchscreen ballot marking devices (Kemp & Philly want the barcodes).
drive.google.com/file/d/1O05dCw…
3/ @OSET also prepared this white paper recommending hand marked paper ballots as a primary voting system, and advising against the machine marked barcoded kind from touchscreen ballot marking devices. Again, Brian Kemp & Philly want the barcodes! trustthevote.org/wp-content/upl…

People bled & some even died 4 the right to vote. Now Brian Kemp plans 2 force Georgia voters to use an insecure #BarcodeVoting system that will prevent voters from knowing if their votes have been stolen. Where's the media?! @maddowblog @allinwithchris #HandMarkedPaperBallots 1/

Dear @StaceyAbrams: Pls attend this crucial hearing on Tuesday. Brian Kemp is about to realize his dream of buying insecure #BarcodeVoting from voting machine vendor ES&S, which has donated $30k to @RSLC (which includes the GOP SSA on which Kemp served as an executive)! 1/

For years, election insiders have misled the public & media by referring to MACHINE-marked barcoded printouts from insecure #BarcodeVoting systems as "paper ballots." Overcoming this will require REPETITION & CLARITY re: the importance of #HandMarkedPaperBallots @staceyabrams 1/
