I used to hear IT Election experts like Professor Buell express these views offline, and I thought my head would explode bc the media wasn’t aware and wasn’t reporting it. That is finally changing! #handmarked #paperballots #NoBarcodes
By “these views,” I mean the importance of HAND marked paper ballots verses COMPUTER marked barcoded paper ballots from touchscreens like the ExpressVote. For so long, the media referred only to “paper ballots,” ignoring the distinction between the two types.
Another example of the media finally being specific about HAND marking the paper ballots.

Vote tally manipulation is almost impossible to prove bc states still use unverifiable touchscreens, vendors & courts don’t allow forensic audits, states don’t conduct meaningful manual audits & stymie hand recounts, paper ballots are often destroyed in contested elections... 1/

Felons & Kickbacks & Bribes Oh My! Read this 60 pg footnoted attorney report on ES&S, Diebold, Sequoia, & Hart, & then send it to ur state & local election officials. Tell them no more touchscreens & no COMPUTER marked “paper ballots” w/ BARCODES! 1/ votersunite.org/info/VendorsPr…
Thread re: how many plan 2 replace touchscreen voting machines (which provide no means 4 voters 2 know if their vote was recorded correctly) w/ touchscreen ballot markers (which provide no means 4 voters 2 know if their vote was recorded correctly)! 2/
By the way, many officials mislead by calling these COMPUTER marked paper records with bar codes “voter verifiable” bc they also include text. Call them on it! The only part of the paper record-which some call a “paper ballot”—actually counted as ur vote is the barcode! 3/
