@stphnfwlr 1/ Thanks for the report, @stphnfwlr. PLEASE let this be the catalyst for a REAL discussion or pros & cons of voting systems @VoteBradRaff is considering. I just want to set my hair on fire reading this and when I hear @PoliticsGPB
review of the issues. If public does not get...
@stphnfwlr @VoteBradRaff @PoliticsGPB 2/ accurate information from the media this time around, the officials will make the same mistakes they did in 2002. Experts warned against Diebold DRE machines, but media stood by and just trusted the monied interest proposing the un-auditable equipment. Public needs media...
@stphnfwlr @VoteBradRaff @PoliticsGPB 3/ to give a totally objective analytical presentation of the issues and stop letting officials or talking heads parrot what vendors tell them without challenge.. There are at least a dozen nationally recognized experts you could interview to understand why the vendor and...
@stphnfwlr @VoteBradRaff @PoliticsGPB 4/ officials' claims are empty, and these barcode balloting systems are expensive un-auditable systems.

It is time for media to stop repeating C.Cox's ridiculously outdated, inaccurate claims re: paper ballots. 75% of the nation votes on paper ballots, with minimal problems. 😡
@stphnfwlr @VoteBradRaff @PoliticsGPB 5/ It's time for media to understand why barcode balloting is NOT a "voter-verified paper trail," and why virtually all computer experts and voting system experts say NO to barcode balloting.
@stphnfwlr @VoteBradRaff @PoliticsGPB 6/ Like what the hell does this quote mean? Barcodes are exactly what "can be changed" after voter cast ballot!! And "we never get into what you were thinking." HUH?? Ballots should reflect what voter was thinking!
@stphnfwlr @VoteBradRaff @PoliticsGPB 7/ No pushback for this nonsense--- a) Cox's b.s. She doesn't admit that there is ballot review board to catch such errors and the ballots DO COUNT!! b) @VoteBradRaff pretends that voters don't make errors in using touchscreens. Like we don't make errors on smartphone keys?
@stphnfwlr @VoteBradRaff @PoliticsGPB 8/ No questioning of this nonsensical idea of having a new system in place in 2019 or even 2020??? This is terribly irresponsible idea and press should be talking to people who know why it is reckless.
@stphnfwlr @VoteBradRaff @PoliticsGPB 9/ GA press/media---Voters NEED you to step up your game, and help protect the state from another 15 years of unreliable, un-auditable voting. Fair elections are essential, and we need you to help protect the system, and STOP DEFENDING OFFICIALS' LIES AND NONSENSE.
@stphnfwlr @VoteBradRaff @PoliticsGPB 10/ What exactly is it that legislature needs from SAFE??? NOTHING, if gold standard of hand marked paper ballots is the future. That is already in GA law. (Yes, audit law is needed.) Why isn't press asking what the need is for 2019 legislature?
@stphnfwlr @VoteBradRaff @PoliticsGPB 11/ With barcode balloting, for "verification" of ballot, EVERY VOTER MUST "test the machine!!" 😡😡😡Voters should not be required to TEST voting machines! That is burdening the voter and wrongheaded. Voters should hand mark their paper ballots and cast them. Then scanned by...
@stphnfwlr @VoteBradRaff @PoliticsGPB 12/ optical scanner and independent audit should follow. Let the voter just vote. Don't make them test the machines!! Vast majority of us are incapable of testing them anyway!! (Only those who have "Rain Man memory" could do it.
@stphnfwlr @VoteBradRaff @PoliticsGPB 13/ So in 2019 can we have resolution from local reporters to dig for truth, push back, interview real experts, stop promoting vendor false claims, and try to help protect the voters from officials' bias to expensive options promoted by corrupt vendors? 👇👇👇
