Some folks will tell you it's too late to pass Sen. Wyden's #PAVEAct before the midterms and that the hand marked paper ballots clause will never be accelerated to 2018 anyway, so we should not waste our time demanding it. I disagree. 1/
We need out LEADERS in Washington to clarify for the entire country what MUST and CAN be done by 2018 to protect our votes. Even if the #PAVEAct does not pass, clarity of messaging may facilitate change at the state & local level. 2/
With so much misinformation from the Election Assistance Commission itself and many state and county local officials, we desperately need someone to LEAD the country in this area. @RonWyden "gets it." His #PAVEAct is spot on (except for delaying implementation to 2020). 3/
There has NEVER BEEN MASS VOTER ENGAGEMENT ABOUT ELECTION SECURITY. So we don't know what we can and cannot achieve if we mobilize like we have mobilized on other issues. And there IS still time for hand marked ballots in 2018. 4/
6/ So please amplify Sen. Wyden's messaging in this area and his #PAVEAct, while demanding that the hand marked paper ballots clause accelerate to 2018!
7/ Please amplify the need for #handmarkedpaperballots and the #PAVEAct via @ResistBot, email, and phone. Here is a proposed script!…
8/ Here is a link to a "print me" list of all US senator physical addresses and phone numbers.…
9/ Here is a link to all US senator email addresses.…
10/ If you'd rather demand #handmarkedpaperballots and the #PAVEAct from your senators via Twitter, feel free to cut and paste the script into a Twitter Thread of your own. Here are twitter addresses for all US senators:…
11/ It matters that our leaders FIGHT for the right thing. And it matters that we DEMAND that they do that. Because we might actually succeed! Even if we don't, it's a lot harder 2 challenge suspicious election outcomes based on what should have been done if u never asked for it.
12/ And it's a lot harder to explain why suspicious election outcomes should be challenged if you have an uninformed populace. Which is again, why we need our leaders in Washington to inform them!
