Wow. The NY Board of Elections has requested reexamination of the state’s certification of the Dominion Imagecast Evolution based on its Permission to Cheat feature, which ES&S’s ExpressVote also includes as an option. Brian Kemp seems to want this option for GA. #gapol #HB316 1/
2/ Today’s article stating that NY is seeking to re-examine its certification of the Dominion ImageCast Evolution bc of this feature. via @honlarryvaughn freedom-to-tinker.com/2019/03/08/ree
3/ The problematic feature is that it includes an Auto Cast (w/o inspection) mode wherein the machine marks the paper ballot AFTER you select Auto Cast, which means it can make the ballot say whatever it wants for those voters who have chosen not to inspect the paper.
4/ As explained by IT election expert Andrew Appel, this ability to print on the paper ballot AFTER the voter has cast it also means that the machine can add additional votes even for those voters who DO inspect the paper before casting it.
5/ Here is Professor Appel’s article explaining the point in post 4. freedom-to-tinker.com/2018/10/16/des
6/ The implications of this post-casting marking ability are even worse than what I previously reported. Merely removing the Auto Cast feature probably won’t suffice to fix it.
7/ This has direct & enormous implications for Johnson County, Kansas, @PhillyVotes, Delaware, Ohio, New Jersey, Texas, and all other jurisdictions that have bought or plan to buy all-in-one (aka “hybrid”) systems from ES&S or Dominion. JESUS.
8/ FYI, some jurisdictions refer to these all-in-one systems as “hybrids.” I know for a fact that many Ohio jurisdictions want the hybrids. OMG. I have chills now.
9/ ES&S and Dominion account for more than 80% of US election equipment, and these hybrids seem to be what they are pushing the hardest. I’m guessing A LOT have been sold already. It may not seem like exciting news to the casual observer, but it doesn’t get much bigger than this.
