The states shown in orange below include at least some counties that still use the Accuvote TSX touchscreen voting machines, which are vulnerable to denial-of-service attacks (that prevent u from voting at all) and vote flipping. Thread. 1/
Use the verifier tool linked here to find the specific counties in each of these states that use the Accuvote TSX. Then call the county election boards and demand that they use #handmarked #paperballots in the midterms instead! 2/…
3/ Tell these counties they must NOT replace the Accuvote TSX with touchscreen barcode ballot markers like the ExpressVote. All touchscreens are bad! The ExpressVote makes things worse with an unverifiable barcode! Pls send them my article.…
4/ Do NOT believe them if they tell you the "Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trails" make the Accuvote TSX acceptable. VVPATs are a scam. Again, please read my article in Lulu's video linked in posts 2-3 above. Here's another article.…
5/ Please also send them @LuluFriesdat's excellent short video that SHOWS the glaring problems w/ Accuvote TSX touchscreen voting machines, as well as the new touchscreen barcode ballot markers like the ExpressVote and ImageCast.
6/ Please also call the state election boards in the following states that still exclusively use paperless touchscreen voting machines and tell them to use #handmarked #paperballots in the midterms as well: New Jersey, Delaware, Georgia, Louisiana and South Carolina.
7/ Yes, there is still time to get this done by the midterms! As I've learned from @MarilynRMarks1, even most paperless states have scanners that they already use for paper absentee ballots. They can use those scanners to count hand marked ballots for all voters in the midterms!
8/ Alternatively, they can count them by hand. There is NO EXCUSE 4 them to NOT to give all voters the option 2 use #handmarked #paperballots in the midterms. Touchscreens should be used only for those voters who are unable to hand mark their ballots and only if they want to.
9/ Give all the states you call Hell about this too.
10/ And while you have them on the phone, please demand--and I mean DEMAND--that they confirm that they will have paper backups of voter registration lists AT EACH POLLING PLACE in case electronic pollbooks fail. Try to get this in writing. Pls let me know what they tell you. TY!

Study shows that people of all political persuasions are willing to modify their beliefs based on corrective info from reliable sources, but “subjects ‘re-believed’ the false info when retested a week later.” 1/…
2/ The author of the article says It may help to warn people in advance that they are likely to forget the correction bc “this helps them mentally tag the bogus information as false.”
3/ It’s also “important that the corrective information be repeated as frequently, and with even greater clarity, than the myth.”

I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings but elections have been electronically suspect starting long before the Trump/Russia scandal. This article is lulling folks into a false sense of security, which is dangerous. Domestic hackers & insiders were always an equal threat. 1/

I agree, tho not enuf time (and 0 political will) to do this in Nov. Wish it were different. For now I hope to stop states from doubling up on electronics w/ touchscreen ballot markers. Using electronics to count votes is bad enuf. Having them mark our ballots too is nuts. 1/
Nuts except for those who are unable to hand mark their ballots. Once you have hand marked paper ballots they can be either scanned or hand counted (my preference) or both. 2/
Any time u put a machine between the voter and the paper record of voter intent there is an opportunity for programming mischief. Here is just the latest example.: 3/

I’m hoping some of the cyber experts who signed the letter about the risks of using cellular modems to transfer election results can answer this question. Thx! @philipbstark @SEGreenhalgh @rad_atl @jhalderm
P. 79 describes the modem…
Seeing as no one has answered yet, I will say that even if the cellular modems CAN be configured to bypass the internet, we should not have to blindly trust that vendors or whoever else is hired to set them up will do that. 1/

Kathy Rogers, the face & voice of @ESSVote, which has installed CELLULAR MODEMS in tabulators in WI & FL, is cozying up to @DHSgov which refuses to advise states to remove the modems despite a letter from 30 cyber experts & EI groups stating it should do so. #CorruptElections 1/
Here’s the letter.… 2/

The notion that cellular modems affect only “unofficial” results is bogus bc, among other reasons, in certain jurisdictions, unofficial results become the official results once added to absentees & provisionals—sometimes w/o ever comparing them to the precinct results tapes! 1/
And Wisconsin doesn’t even require that counties publicly post the results tapes so that the public itself can make this comparison! (I don’t know about Florida, Michigan, & Illinois.) 2/
Thus, we must simply trust that someone trustworthy is conducting this due diligence. In Johnson County, Kansas, the County acknowledged that it does NOT conduct this basic due diligence. 3/
