🔥 The new #PAVEAct bans dangerous barcode voting systems, "hybrid" ballot marking devices, & touchscreen voting machines. These terms go into effect one year from the date the #PAVEAct is passed, which means that Congress must pass it before November! Start calling! ☎️1/
2/ Here's the text of the #PAVEAct. It expressly requires that jurisdictions give voters the option to mark their ballots by hand. But it does not specify that this option must be provided at the polls (in addition to allowing vote by mail). I wish it did. wyden.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/…
3/ Still, for jurisdictions that use precincts or polling centers, that is the more or less the practical effect of the provisions mentioned in post 1 that ban barcode voting systems, "hybrid" voting systems, and touchscreen voting machines.

If someone can prove that electronic vote tallies have been manipulated (a very difficult task w/ our equipment & system), it will light a fire under the move to secure our elections. Our best chance to get that proof is @CoalitionGoodGv's suit about these 127k missing votes. 2/
As far as I know, there is no one else coming close to doing this for any other race in the country. Pls support this lawsuit, as well as the #HandMarkedPaperBallot suit also filed by @CoalitionGoodGv. Both are described here: coalitionforgoodgovernance.org/current-projec…. Thanks! @MarilynRMarks1 3/

Georgia voters! Pls listen to @BetsyforGeorgia! Call ur state House Reps & ask them to vote NO on #HB316, which would force all GA voters to use barcode ballot marking devices even tho all independent cybersecurity experts say they are too insecure for use as a primary system! 1/
