Here is the final text of the House election-security bill called the #SAFEAct. congress.gov/116/bills/hr27…

The first paragraph requires that all voters have the option to mark their ballots by hand and bans barcode voting systems (albeit without using the word "barcode"): 1/
2/ I was assured by a legislative assistant for a member of Congress that the #SAFEAct incorporated the #PAVEAct's ban on hybrid systems (BMD/scanner combos) that route machine-marked paper ballots under the printer head after they are cast.
3/ The language is there, but it's in the Optical Scanner section, which may be a huge problem bc it is the BALLOT MARKER component, not the SCANNER component that in some hybrids can mark paper ballots after they are cast. cc: @RepZoeLofgren @RonWyden
