Woah. GOP lawmakers in Georgia-@buzzbrockway (a candidate for SOS), @ed_setzler, & @brucethompsonga--want to pass #SB403 giving the SOS the power and obligation to program all voting equipment in the state, creating a centralized point of attack for hackers! #KillTheBill 1/

2. Why else? Because there are a lot of great people in Georgia who are rightly concerned that these hackable electronic pencils will mean their votes won’t count, and they need our help!
3. Georgia is about to pave the way for these hackable pencils with the passage of #SB403, a law whose key provision was apparently drafted by ES&S, the vendor of such pencils.
