I’m at the AZ Senate & I’ll be live tweeting the vote on 2 of @MichelleUgenti’s voter suppression bills - #SB1046 & #SB1072. Your Senator has their laptop on the floor so keep emailing & @ them on social & ask them to vote NO. #VotingMattersAZ #ThingsThatMatterAZ
Peruse this thread for a brief overview of the 2 bills at issue here.
Thank you to @SenQuezada29 for using his point of personal privilege to recognize us defenders of democracy. #VotingMattersAZ

🚨ALERT: @TarrantCountyTX’s voters, did you receive a letter from the county saying your voter registration was incomplete? Unfortunately, the county sent out incorrect information in a mailer. If you received the notice below, you can complete your information in person & vote!
The letter from @TarrantCountyTX incorrectly states that if you update your information within 10 days, your registration will be effective 30 days later. This is wrong. If you update within 10 days, your registration will be effective as of the date you originally sent it.
🚨 NOTE: If you sent your registration before the Oct. 9th deadline, you can still vote if you update your information!

🚨 ALERT: We have received multiple reports from voters who voted straight-ticket, then saw on a later screen that their votes were changed to that of the opposite party. You must check your ballot before casting to ensure it’s correct, and you can ask a poll worker for help.
As a @TXsecofstate advisory explains, the issue arises because of the confusing and antiquated way the voting machine operates—not a conspiracy to change votes. More details here: sos.state.tx.us/elections/laws…
The eHart voting machines were brought into use at the turn of the century. Texas is in desperate need to modernize our election systems. In the meantime:
- Check your ballot
- Ask a poll worker for help
- Call us at 866-OUR-VOTE if you have questions

Russian hackers penetrated the election systems of 7 states and targeted 21. They could wreak havoc on our election should they choose to. Congress must fully fund the states to protect against these attacks! #ProtectOurVote #PaperBallotsNow #TW
15Congress must work to inform the citizens of the use of "dezinfomatsiya" by Russia in an attempt to sway the views of the American voters. The people must be informed when false information is planted by a bad actor. #ProtectOurVote #PaperBallotsNow #TW
The Deter Act and its severe sanctions against foreign interference in our elections is one line of defense for 2018 midterm elections. Congress must pass it to restore country's faith in elections! #ProtectOurVote #PaperBallotsNow #TW
