New York is poised to certify touchscreen ballot marking devices that put voters’ selections into an unverifiable barcode & can’t be reliably audited. The vendor is ES&S, which has donated $30K to the GOP since 2013. Decision June 6! #BanBarcodeVoting 1/

Please tell your members of Congress, state lawmakers, and state and county election officials that we need #HandMarkedPaperBallots as a primary voting system in 2020.

Link to expert report: papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cf… 1/
2/ Please tell them NO to touchscreen voting machines, including the paperless kind and the kind with useless so-called "Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trails." medium.com/@jennycohn1/to…
3/ Tell them NO to barcoded paper summary cards--which vendors have convinced everyone to call "paper ballots"--marked by hackable ballot marking devices (a new type of touchscreen system taking the country by storm). Humans can't read barcodes!
