Huge ruling in litigation challenging #Georgia’s vulnerable, paperless election system. 1/
Court declined to require paper ballots for this November, but found “with a measure of true caution” that Plaintiffs are likely to succeed on the merits. 2/
“Plaintiffs have shown that their Fourteenth Amendment rights to Due Process and Equal Protection have been burdened” by GA’s vulnerable system. 3/
GA’s system - based on paperless DRE machines that have been shown for years to be vulnerable to cyber-attack - falls short of requirement that “an electoral system must be accurate and trustworthy.” 4/
This is, in effect, the constitutional argument @protctdemocracy is making in litigation challenging South Carolina’s system. 5/
The court also rebuked GA officials -- including Brian Kemp -- for burying “their heads in the sand.” 6/
It said that Defendants will fail to address the reality of persistent cyber-threats “if they demean as paranoia the research-based findings of national cyber-security engineers and experts in the field of elections.” 7/
It concluded: “The 2020 elections are around the corner. ..." 8
"... If a new balloting system is to be launched in GA in an effective manner, it should address democracy’s critical need for transparent, fair, accurate, and verifiable election processes that guarantee each citizen’s fundamental right to cast an accountable vote." 9/9
