2. "It started out a good day. The day before I celebrated my 14th anniversary with my husband. The cherry blossom tree we planted in the backyard was exploding in pink taffy balls, and the smell of the lilies he got me floated through the living room as I walked to my desk."
3. "From there it went downhill pretty quickly ... For the last 2 years, I have been trying to protect New York voters, and voters across the country from a particularly “bad” type of voting machine known as a “hybrid”.

What is a “hybrid” voting machine?"

1. This year, universal #MailInBallots were widely adopted by states in response to the #Pandemic.

This year, 9 states plus #WashingtonDC mailed #Ballots to everyone on their voter rolls, while others suspended the witness requirement.
2. #Progressive groups in many states sued to ease #ElectionSecurity features for #MailInBallots and, in some cases, to allow #Ballots to arrive after #ElectionDay.

So @TuckerCarlson finally gets its, most of us already knew, and in plain sight so will you.

1. Electronic Voting is not as secure as hand counting. Voters can see it and it makes them nervous. Leaders given every reason to not trust the technology.

The #Recount in #Georgia intended to determine the outcome of the #2020Election has come under scrutiny as multiple #PollWatchers in sworn affidavits describe significant anomalies and #Irregularities. (Thread👇) theepochtimes.com/georgia-recoun…
The #Affidavits, under penalty of perjury, are part of an emergency motion filed in a bid to halt the certification of #Georgia’s #ElectionResults. courtlistener.com/recap/gov.usco…
Observers in #FultonCounty, #DeKalbCounty, and #CobbCounty—including an #Election official auditor, an election #Recount monitor, a credentialed statewide #PollWatcher, and several recount observers—raised their concerns in sworn affidavits.

Thread:
1. NY just passed #AVR Automatic Voter Registration. @StandUpAmerica estimates this will add over 1Mill voters to the #NY rolls. Wouldn't it be great to know that those votes were going to be counted correctly? But w/new #VotingMachines being certified we will not know.
2. #Security experts like @rad_atl & @kskoglund & auditing expert @philipbstark say that the hybrid #VotingMachines are not secure and "No form of audit can confirm they functioned correctly." (Quote from Dr. Stark). Read a paper he co-authored. stat.berkeley.edu/~stark/Preprin…
3. One #Hybrid #VotingMachine is already certified in #NY. It's the Dominion ICE & is in at least 15 counties including #Westchester County where they're trying to buy 100s more. In the Westchester #primary the ICE hybrid voting machines created 4 hour lines. via @IndivisWstchr

Thread #ElectionSecurity is THE #VoterSuppression issue.
1. I want you to listen to this @nytimes #TheDaily podcast about the #GeorgiaPrimary meltdown nytimes.com/2020/06/11/pod… Listen to how they tiptoe around the issue of #votingmachines & don't identify them as the CENTRAL issue.
2. Why are #votingmachines the central #VoterSuppression issue in #GA & many other states? Because they are the new #JimCrow. The machine is the way officials control how many ppl vote & how those votes are counted. It might as well be a literacy test. Could it be more obvious?
3. The podcast notes that the counties that did not get enough voting machines (for example 3, when they needed 8) were the counties with LARGE #Dem populations w/predominantly voters of color. W/a touchscreen voting machine if you don't have enough machines you have long lines.

#ElectionSecurity funding will NOT actually have to be used for Election Security.
$425M allocated in bill to be announced later today.
"the funding deal used the language in the Senate version" which has NO #security requirements.
thehill.com/policy/cyberse… via @jennycohn1
@jennycohn1 2/ Why is this bad? Because states will be pressured by vendors to buy risky & expensive #votingmachines that do not protect voters or #taxpayers. Plz call members of the appropriations committee & ask them to include the language from #HR3351.
@jennycohn1 3/ What is #HR3351? It's the 2020 govt. funding bill that passed the House. It's a massive bill that includes $ & #security requirements to help protect #Election2020.

congress.gov/bill/116th-con…

Here is the language that relates to #ElectionSecurity.

🚨 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

There's been a lot of talk about #electionsecurity since we know #Russia will try to hack the #2018Midterms.

This thread will give brief overviews of #votingmachines, #opensource software & #handmarked #paperballots. THREAD 1/10 #MondayMotivaton
Jurisdictions don't have 💰 or staff to buy new machines frequently or keep the ones they have up to date with security updates. There's no voting machine that can't be hacked. 2/10 nytimes.com/2018/02/21/mag…
Manufacturers & election officials say since the machines aren't connected to the internet, they can't be hacked. But that's not accurate. Polling places transmit voting results using modems. 3/10 #technology #hack #telecommunications
