Great news! Today, after hearing from thousands of Texans, the @TXsecofstate issued additional guidance to voters & election officials regarding Hart eSlate Electronic Voting Machines. Last night, we sent a letter to the Secretary. #ProtectOurVote…
This is an enormous victory for voters in Texas. Thousands of you shared your concerns & signed our petition asking the @TXsecofstate to take action.…
Throughout the week we received multiple reports from voters who voted straight-ticket, then saw on a later screen that their vote for a particular race was changed to that of the opposite party.
The guidance instructs county election officials to amplify these tips for voters casting ballots in the 82 Texas counties that have chosen to employ Hart Intercivic eSlate voting machines in their elections:
1) When voting a straight-party ballot, wait at least 3-5 seconds for all choices to be rendered on the eSlate voting machines. Counties in which voters have longer ballots may require additional time to allow the screens to load fully.
2) Once all the candidate choices for that particular party have been fully loaded, take your time to slowly review each choice in each race before advancing to the next screen.
3) When advancing to the next screen, be sure the screen is fully loaded before scrolling through to the subsequent pages.
4) Once you have reached the summary page, carefully review each choice listed to ensure the candidate selected is, in fact, the candidate for whom you wish to cast your vote.
5) If you find that one or more of your choices are displayed incorrectly on the summary page, hit the 'PREV' button and choose the candidate for whom you wish to cast your vote.
6) If any issues persist, ask for assistance from a poll worker at your polling location, and the poll worker will ensure that the machine is working properly and advise you on the proper steps to take to cast a ballot with only the candidates of your choosing.
We thank the @TXsecofstate for working to bolster trust in the integrity of our election. Texas voters should have full confidence that when they use a voting machine they are indeed casting their ballot for their candidate of choice.
We will also re-double our efforts to ensure that every eligible voter can cast a ballot this election. Through the Texas #ElectionProtection Coalition, we have nonpartisan volunteers helping voters across the state. Will you join us? #ProtectOurVote
