#CARecallElection facts:

✅California’s voting system standards & testing requirements are some of the strongest in the nation.
✅ CA requires voter-verified paper ballots. Ballots are optically scanned & digitally counted. The counts are verified through post-election audits.
✅ Every county must select a subset of their ballots (1% of their precincts) at random & tally the votes on those ballots, then compare them to the software-counted votes to verify they match. This is a public process that anyone can observe upon request. #CARecall
✅ Independent testers working through the CA Secretary of State’s office conduct voting system source code reviews, & volume, functionality, accessibility, & security tests before voting systems are certified. #CARecall
✅ Every active CA voter was issued a ballot for this election & all vote-by-mail ballots cast, whether by mail or dropped off, must bear the voter’s signature, & will only be counted if received on time & once the signature is verified against the voter’s reg. signature on file.

There are numerous inaccuracies here @BreibartNews. None of this indicates fraud & is instead a distortion of facts & data to create confusion & misinfo. Here is what your ‘interview’ w/ Mr. Adams gets wrong. 1/10

State policies vary which means some have more accurate data than others. As an ex, if a state has failed to adopt AVR (like TX) or doesn’t use NCOA proactively, states will not know a voter moved until a ballot is undeliverable. But guess what - there are safeguards. 2/10
Also, voters may decide to vote in-person & there is inconsistency with how states capture that data which is also evident in the EAVS data. Voters were told repeatedly by some that mail ballots were bad. So they changed their minds which is also part of the unreturned %. 3/10

Sunday thread on election results & #Election2020 #2020Elections

1. It is not new that election results are not final on election night. There is a certification process, provisional ballots to process, audits, & extra time for military & overseas ballots to be counted.
2. The desire to call an election to make the 10 pm news on the east coast has always been a problem & ignores a giant portion of the population still voting in western states & completely ignores AK & HI who have hours left. Let voters vote without being influenced by the news.
3. We will have more paper ballots & advanced auditing techniques like risk- limiting audits require specific modifications to ballot processing which can add time to process ballots (which is good, by the way).
