Um, 2022?!
“Deluzio said that’s why post-election audits that take a sample of the ballots & look at the text, rather than the barcodes, are so important. PA began piloting such audits last year, & by 2022, all counties wld be auditing...this way.” 1/ lebtown.com/2020/10/22/a-y…
These are barcode touchscreen voting machines. Most experts say that even the human readable text can’t be audited reliably. Even in 2022. 🙄 What a scam. 2/ liebertpub.com/doi/10.1089/el…
Per @PAStateDept’s iwn testing, these new touchscreens also take voters 3X as long to use as #handmarkedpaperballots & scanners. They are a scam, a vendor boondoggle at best. @TomWolfPA 3/

Did u know that ES&S’s county tabulators in FL, MI, WI, TN, IL, IN, MN & God Knows Where Else connect to the internet?

✅Pls help @ProtectVotes photograph precinct totals (posted outside polls after they close) to compare to county tabulator totals. 1/ vice.com/en/article/3kx…
This map shows where we at ProtectOurVotes.com have volunteers, but in many places we have only a few precincts covered. We need hundreds of precincts in hundreds of counties in each of the states to take photos. Please join us if you can. Thanks! 3/ Image

More narrative warfare from the GOP. Remember the fake Miners for Trump rally? Are they doing the same thing w/ fracking to make another poll-defying Trump “win” in PA seem plausible? The GOP blocked a bill, the SAFEAct which wld have required robust election audits. Fishy. 1/ Image

Please help this go viral. Voters must wake up before it’s too late. They can help make this election more transparent in multiple ways but not if they don’t think there’s a problem. Thanks. 1/
Here are 8 election transparency projects to support. #PhotoFinish (photographing precinct totals & comparing to reported totals) needs volunteers in particular. Pls register to help at ProtectOurVotes.com. All states can participate! 2/ threadreaderapp.com/thread/1315422…
Here is my interview of @DonSiegelman where we discuss what the GOP (Rove and company) did on election night and after. It is appalling. 3/

Most Democrats operate under a collective delusion that we should pretend that Republican operatives would never hack voting tallies & do nothing to try to stop or detect any such election theft other than voting. But there is much more we can & must do. 1/
I will never understand how anyone in their right mind could believe that we can continue simply trusting voting machine vendors & their customers (election officials) after reading this @KimZetter piece. 2/ vice.com/en/article/mb4…
3/ Pls help protect the election (including down ballot races) by volunteering to photograph precinct results (as posted on poll tapes after polls close) on election night. We will compare to official totals & report any discrepancies. TY.

.@DonSiegelman was governor, Lt. governor, Secty of State, & AG of Alabama. He’s the only former Dem candidate w/ the guts to say that Rs likely hacked his election. Rs ensure no one can prove anything by blocking manual audits & recounts. Read. ⬇️ 1/
With proprietary software & an absence of meaningful manual audits and recounts, no one can know if electronic outcomes are legitimate or not — even in jurisdictions w/ #handmarkedpaperballots. 2/
It is up to us, the voters, to provide #electiontransparency where we can through grass roots activism this election. 3/

😳Officials in FL, MI, WI, MN, & IL ignored election-security experts who advised them to remove (or at least not use) the modems in their precinct ballot scanners. So @ionsancho just sent the attached letter to FL county officials. Will they listen?! 1/ drive.google.com/file/d/1ktxlyE…
2/ Here's the election-security expert sent to @FLSecofState in September, which she ignored ignored. The letter implored her to #RemoveTheModems from FL's precinct ballot scanners. It may be too late now to remove them, but they cld at least not use them. documentcloud.org/documents/7225…
3/ Here's a recent article about the risks of these modems in Florida. The same concerns apply in all of the other states with these modems. Again, officials in all of these states are ignoring the warnings. palmbeachpost.com/story/news/202…

Media beware: Similar to rigging polls, Trump needs a rigged narrative to explain why he might conceivably win Pennsylvania. In 2016. it was a fake “Miners for Trump” movement. Is his “Pennsylvania voters want fracking” narrative just another head fake? 1/ nytimes.com/2020/03/31/bus…

Voters! The DHS never apparently looked to see if vote totals were changed in 2016. Enough! Pls volunteer w/ PhotoFinish at ProtectOurVotes.com to photograph precinct totals > polls close. We will compare 2 official totals. TY! #ElectionTransparency 1/ fastcompany.com/90341582/two-a…
The poll tapes are usually posted outside precincts on election night. Where they aren’t posted, we will need volunteers to help with public records requests. Where they are posted, we need volunteers 2 photograph them on election night and then upload for us. Pls join us! 2/
This short video explains our simple uploader process. The uploader enables us to display all the tapes and analyze them to make sure they match what is reported officially. Pls listen :-) @ProtectVotes 3/

I’m old enuf to remember when @Susan_Hennessey said the 2016 election was “legitimate. Period.” Hers is an anti-transparency philosophy that we cannot afford to tolerate again. Seems she’s palsy with David Becker. Birds of feather... 1/
2/ Here’s her new tweet which links to a panel on which she spoke earlier this year w/ Becker. If u go to her portion of the panel, she repeats the misleading mantra that there’s “no evidence” vote tallies were changed in 2016 & claims we should all take great comfort in this. 🙄
3/ For F#ck sake, there is no evidence anybody looked in a meaningful way!!! That is the opposite of comforting, & if we keep pretending this away, there will never be accountability. No accountability = more of the same. businessinsider.com/dhs-is-refusin…

"Officials say Russia's ability to change vote tallies nationwide is limited." As in limited to the swing states??? Seriously, what kind of statement is this?! 1/
Unfortunately, it is now too late now to remove the cellular modems in WI, MI, FL, MN, IN, IL, & RI, which connect both the precinct ballot scanners & county election management systems (which aggregate precinct totals) to the internet. 2/ vice.com/en/article/3kx…
But it is not too late for election officials to not use them. If only a highly respected individual with an enormous public presence would sound the alarm. My platform is not large enough to gain sufficient leverage. It just isn’t. And I’m so worried. 3/

Warning. David Becker defends touchscreen voting & spread the myth that it wld be almost impossible 4 remote hackers to change vote tallies bc voting machines supposedly never connect to the internet. He’s a protege of Georgia’s disgraced former election director Merle King. 1/ Image
Here’s a link to the article on Merle King and how portions of Georgia’s system were left exposed and online and how he tried to cover it up. 2/ politico.com/magazine/story…

David Becker “has used disgraced non-computer scientist Merle King for his cybersecurity counsel; no wonder so much is wrong.” Remember the wiped server in Georgia? That happened on Merle King’s watch. 1/ wabe.org/two-georgia-el…
Receipts. David Becker and Merle King. 2/
3/ More on King: “When Lamb notified CES directly of the issue in August 2016, Merle King..allegedly told him, “It would be best if you were to drop this now,” and warned that if Lamb did talk “the people downtown, the politicians ... would crush [him].” courthousenews.com/wp-content/upl…

Uh, no. “Company diagrams showing the configuration of modem-enabled DS200 systems [precinct ballot scanners] clearly depict the modems transmitting election results over the internet to ES&S election mgmt systems that also are connected 2 the internet.”politico.com/news/2020/08/1… 1/
2/ $10 days David Becker told Amy Gardner this misinformation. He’s NOT an election-security expert. He just pretends and spreads misinformation.
3/ I debunked Becker’s BS on this issue here. His misinformation is dangerous—and he is unapologetic—which is why I included it specifically in the video.
