Reminder: @MarshaBlackburn blocked the #SAFEAct, which would require the removal of the wireless modems that were installed in swing states (Wisconsin, Florida, and beyond) starting in 2015. These modems connect the voting machines to the internet. #RemoveTheModems #ModemMarsha

The #SAFEAct would ban (among other things):

* Connecting voting machines to the internet.

* Unauditable paperless touchscreen voting machines still used in @MarshaBlackburn’s state of TN.

Why does Marsha want to keep internet connectivity & unauditable voting machines?! 1/

@RedTRaccoon Here’s a good place to begin.

I hope everyone will take time to read or view Jeff Sharlet’s book “The Family” asap. It’s urgent!

Watch his video from “Democracy in Chains” author, Nancy MacLean too.

The Koch agenda is happening now.

@RedTRaccoon We can’t wait & hope for impeachment or elections alone to solve our Koch RW problem.

NOW is the time to work & plan for the "if". That means having a plan. We don't have to agree on anything beyond opposing a Fascist RW takeover that endangers us all.

corrupt vendors funded by dark money, and the absence of meaningful manual audits. Please up your game. Speak with @RonWyden. Thanks. 2/

Cybersecurity experts are clamoring for hand marked paper ballots. Why is @StandUpAmerica clamoring for a bill that would allow more taxpayer money to be spent on universal use ballot marking devices as a primary voting system?! Why won’t it support the #SAFEAct instead?! 1/
2/ For those just tuning in, the phrase “voter verifiable paper ballots” is industry code for hand marked paper ballots OR universal use ballot marking devices. Weird how @StandUpAmerica & @secureourvotes omit that little “detail.”

“Top Election Expert Quits ‘Verified Voting’ Organization In Protest”

VV FALSELY represented that comparing electronic totals to printouts generated by hackable ballot-marking machines (which it misleadingly calls “paper ballots”) can confirm outcomes. nationalmemo.com/top-election-e…
“Paper ballots” are safe only if marked by hand, not by a machine. Ballot marking machines should be purchased only for the small subset of voters who can’t hand mark and who wish to use them. #HandMarkedPaperBallots #SAFEAct

🤬This piece promotes the Secure Elections Act, not the #SAFEAct. Only the latter wld ban most universal use Ballot Marking Devices like those that failed in Northampton Cnty, PA. The #SAFEAct wd ban internet connectivity too. ⁦#HandMarkedPaperBallots 1/ realclearpolitics.com/articles/2019/…
2/ Here’s one of my pieces re: type of universal use Ballot Marking Device (BMD) that failed in PA. It’s called a “hybrid” bc it combines a BMD & scanner into a single unit, creating xtra complexity & vulnerability. The paper trail is also untrustworthy. salon.com/2019/03/28/new…
3/ Here’s another piece of mine about these new hybrids which failed spectacularly in Johnson County, Kansas, the first jurisdiction in the US to try this configuration. tyt.com/stories/4vZLCH…

.@amyklobuchar: The universal use Ballot Marking Device (BMD) system that failed in PA is what the industry calls a “backup paper ballot” system! You must add the “hand marked” prefix or many voters will be stuck w/ universal use BMDs. #HandMarkedPaperBallots 1/
2/ The #SAFEAct, which was written by @RonWyden (originally called the #PAVEAct) and passed the House, would ban the Ballot Marking Device system that failed in Northampton County.

The Election Security Act, which you promote instead would NOT. #HandMarkedPaperBallots
