We should expect to see more talking head recommendations for how to alter the #voting process to address #coronavirus concerns. Voting by mail is going be a part of the solution.

Here's why I don't think it can be the whole solution for the #2020election

THREAD:
States should move to allow more voting by mail independent of recent developments. The @BPC_Bipartisan Task Force on #Elections recommends just that. We support moves by our friends at @voteathome to ensure all Americans have the option to vote by mail

bipartisanpolicy.org/report/logical…
That doesn't mean all states have taken the important steps to update laws and technology to administer an #election with a very high % of #voting by mail, and it's unlikely many can get up to speed before the #2020election. Many state legislatures have already adjourned

Securing America’s Elections Part II: Oversight of Government Agencies #ElectionSecurity hearings supposed to be starting now by the House #JudiciaryCommittee
Strong priorities stated by #MattMasterson from @CISAgov but a focus on detecting interference will not detect insider rigging.
@CISAgov @EACgov Hovland saying states do not have the resources they need to protect #elections. And Election Assistance Commission budget is less than some cities spend on potholes.

For those believing or making accusations, based on 2015 DNC false info, of why Bernie launched #BernApp voter database, instead of using shared DNC VAN voter file database, here are facts why Bernie needed separate voter file database from #DNC.

In Dec. 2015, NGP VAN, campaign info data company, hired by DNC, made a bug "tweak to its system" which dropped the firewall between campaigns, allowing them to briefly see other candidates voter file data. Also in 2008 between Obama/HRC.

Contrary to #DNC, HRC camp & MSM accusations, Sanders' camp did not download or copy any HRC data, as indy investigation proved.

DNC DW Schultz penalized Sanders only, suspending access to voter database. She also blocked her opponent @Tim_Canova.

The landmark #SacharCommittee report that collected & analysed data on the social,economic & educational status of Muslims in India is now available in our resource section. Specifically,it tried to gauge if & why Muslims are under-represented in govt departments & other spheres.
Here are some of its findings. ruralindiaonline.org/resources/soci…
The 2001 Census showed that #literacy rates were low among Muslims, Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes.
The perception that religious conservatism among Muslims is a major factor for not accessing #education is incorrect. As with many Indians, the main reason for ‘educational backwardness’ of Muslims is abject poverty, which forces many children to drop out of school.

Just sayin' - I've got a graf in my #Mississippi piece for @BitterSouth tomorrow that's already made two grown men cry.

Facts can be devastating.

Keep pushing for the truth, my friends. The #ProgressiveSouth will ultimately prevail.
In the South -esp the Deep South- needing a #birthcertificate for #voter registration really is an impossibility for a sizable percentage of older African Americans.

This article is incredible:

TFW you're waiting on your essay to drop after it's been described as such:

"It's going to stir up some shit, and do so with authority..."😉

Happy Thursday, peeps.

1/3 Was trying to remember when the ES&S hack was - when @VotingVillageDC reminded me last night. It was Aug 2017 - In the massive 1.8 mill #voter ES&S #data breach part of the download was...encrypted versions of passwords for ES&S employee accounts. usatoday.com/story/tech/201…
2/3 @UpGuard is the company who found the breach. “The worse-case scenario is that they could be completely infiltrated right now,” said Upguard's director of strategy Jon Hendren.
3/3 ES&S is the largest provider of voting equipment in the country. Let me just repeat that for emphasis. “The worse-case scenario is that they could be completely infiltrated right now.” And hackers could have had a full year to do what they need to do. apnews.com/f6876669cb6b4e…

Hand marked paper ballots shorten lines bc many people can mark their ballots concurrently. (The scanning part is fast.) Touchscreens, which Georgia has, cause long lines bc they limit the # of people who can mark their ballots concurrently to the # of machines at the precinct 1/
Naturally, the GOP is enamored of touchscreens, and Kemp is hell bent on having Georgia replace its current touchscreens with more touchscreens. #ProtectOurVotes 2/
