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. rules.house.gov/bill/116/hr-27…
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!

Paper ballots are safe only if marked by hand, not by a machine. Pls RSVP at SmartElections.US if you can join us in NY on June 6 to call attention to the importance of #HandMarkedPaperBallots as a primary voting system & the dangers of #BarcodeVoting and #HybridVoting. TY!

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…

*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!
