Big news! The House just passed the #SAFEAct, which gives all voters the option to use #HandmarkedPaperBallots & requires #RiskLimitingAudits 4 federal races.

It also bans:

*Barcode voting,
*Hybrid voting, &
*Remote access & internet connectivity!

Next stop: the Senate. 1/
2/ Here’s a link to the #SAFEAct and a screen shot of the amendment that bans barcode voting.…
3/ #BarcodeVoting refers to hackable machine-marked printouts with text & barcodes marked by insecure ballot marking devices like the ES&S ExpressVote & ExpressVote XL. The barcode, which humans can’t read, is the only part counted as your vote. This is banned under the #SAFEAct!

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.…

@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.”…

“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/…
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

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.…

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.…
3/ Philly already voted for #barcodevoting last week. This is my article that tried & failed to stop this travesty.…

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…
3/ @ericgeller - stand strong. You were right. @beckerdavidj was wrong.
