Gee. Who warned again & again about the damn barcodes printed on machine marked paper ballots (as opposed to pen & paper). I did! And, of course, @MarilynRMarks1, @jhalderm, @rad_atl, @SEGreenhalgh, @TheBradBlog, etc. (PS. ES&S uses them too.) #BanBarcodeVoting 1/
In fact, I believe I published the first article warning about barcodes on ballots. 2/ #BanBarcodeVoting
I published it on Medium first. 3/

Here's the new For the People Act (Freedom to Vote Act). In one respect, it's better than the earlier versions in that it requires that all voters have the option to mark their ballots by hand (with a pen) AT THE POLLING PLACE. #HandMarkedPaperBallots 1/…
I and others in the election-security community requested this change. (See example below). 2/
Here's the exact new language in the new bill. Credit to @TheBradBlog who originally spotted the need to make this change several years ago when similar language appeared in the #PAVEAct and #SAFEAct. 3/

If we won’t publicly hand count ballots at precincts then maintaining a transparent chain of custody is crucial. Unfortunately, this is more difficult w/ vote by mail than in person voting. I’m told it can be done. We must make it a priority. Peoples’ lives are being threatened.
The difficulty maintaining a transparent chain of custody does not mean that fraud has occurred. It means you can’t prove that it hasn’t. Which is dangerous under current circumstances especially.

This is it, folks. NC IS SET TO CERTIFY BARCODE BALLOTS THIS SUNDAY AT 5pm. WE NEED YOU! Please come and voice your opposition to casting a ballot that a human cannot verify. Demand #HandMarkedPaperBallots
These barcode ballot machines will not work on election day if the power goes out. We will be left with a stack of blank receipts instead of pre-printed ballots that will keep voting going.
These barcode ballot machines are a waste of taxpayer money (cost at least 3x as much as #HandmarkedPaperballots)
