@SenKamalaHarris Altho @KamalaHarris wasn’t specific, she’s referring to the new #PAVEAct, which:
*Gives voters the right to #HandMarkedPaperBallots
* Bans machine-marked barcoded paper ballots from hackable ballot marking devices & Hybrids
* Bans DREs
*.Requires manual Risk Limiting Audits! 1/
@SenKamalaHarris @KamalaHarris 3/ And thank you to @RonWyden, who took the laboring oar on the #PAVEAct!
@SenKamalaHarris @KamalaHarris @RonWyden 5/ The few things I wish were included but aren’t are:
* preservation of digital ballot images (for use in citizen audits)
* public posting of precinct results and poll tapes, and
* public posting of reported totals (broken down by early voting vs Election Day vs absentee)
@SenKamalaHarris @KamalaHarris @RonWyden 6/ I plan to push for these in the House version of the bill. In the meantime, pls push your members of Congress to pass the PAVEAct.
@SenKamalaHarris @KamalaHarris @RonWyden 7/ Yes, it will be an uphill battle. But it also was an uphill battle to get a respected US senator to write a bill supporting #HandMarkedPaperBallots & banning #BarcodeVoting & #HybridVoting. Let’s give it our best shot.
@SenKamalaHarris @KamalaHarris @RonWyden 8/ And the great thing about a bill that provides real security, like the #PAVEAct, is it makes it easy to fight for its provisions. Because as a matter of undisputed fact, they have merit!
@SenKamalaHarris @KamalaHarris @RonWyden Here’s my piece on the dangers of new “Hybrid” voting systems. It was originally published by @whowhatwhy and garnered a lot of attention. Which it deserved. These machines are an obvious menace. I’m thrilled the #PAVEAct would ban them. 10/ salon.com/2019/03/28/new…
@SenKamalaHarris @KamalaHarris @RonWyden @whowhatwhy We, the voters, fought for the provisions that made their way into this legislation. Yes, I’m sure. This is ground breaking. To my knowledge, voters have never before been the moving force behind an election-security bill. 11/
@SenKamalaHarris @KamalaHarris @RonWyden @whowhatwhy The #PAVEAct should really be called the Peoples’ Election Security Bill. Because that’s largely what it is: a bill by the people for the people. 12/
@SenKamalaHarris @KamalaHarris @RonWyden @whowhatwhy So let’s fight for our election-security bill. Because these are our elections, and we deserve to know if they are legitimate. Thanks! #PAVEAct 13/
