In a post-election audit, what would you want your ballot to look like? Your legislature is abt to pass a bill that would allow barcode printouts to be the official ballot record in lieu of hand-marked #PaperBallots. TELL YOUR REPS: NO ON SB403!!! /1
1) SB403 doesn't permit election audits until 2024 unless the Sec of State agrees.
2) SB403 lets vendors sell uncertified systems; most states require approved systems that meet federal EAC certification. /3
4) In SB403, recounts will be conducted by merely rescanning the barcodes (assuring that the results will be the same as the original “count”). Smoke and mirrors recounts. /4
