Thread 1/7 WHY WE NEED #AUDITS. Professor Andrew Appel breaks down the #myth that someone can't #hack a #VotingMachine if it's not connected to the #Internet. freedom-to-tinker.com/2018/02/22/are… #PaperBallots #AuditTheVote
Thread 2/7 "The ES&S model #DS200 #optical-scan voting machine has a #cellphone modem that it uses to upload #election-night results from the #voting machine to the “county central” canvassing #computer." #PaperBallots #AuditTheVote
Thread 3/7 "The voting machine calls the county-central computer using its cell-phone modem... this connects ... to a cell tower ... near the canvassing computer." #PaperBallots #AuditTheVote
Thread 4/7 "Each border router runs ... millions of lines of software; as such it is subject to bugs and vulnerabilities. If a hacker finds one of these vulnerabilities, he can modify messages as they transit the .. network" #PaperBallots #AuditTheVote
Thread 5/7 "Even easier than hacking through router bugs is just setting up an mposter cell-phone “tower” near the voting machine; one commonly used brand of these, used by many police departments, is called “Stingray.” #PaperBallots #AuditTheVote
Thread 6/7 "S/he will do better to put his Stingray near the county-central canvassing computer, so s/he can hack all the voting machines in the county, not just one near his Stingray." #PaperBallots #AuditTheVote
Thread 7/7 "So, in summary: phone calls are not unconnected to the Internet; the hacking of phone calls is easy (police departments with #Stingray devices do it all the time); and even between the cell-towers (or land-line stations), your calls go over parts of the Internet."

Thread 1. @BrianLehrer I am shocked to hear @JohnKerry admit that they suspected the algorithm of the voting machines in Ohio was manipulated in 2004 & yet they did not challenge the results. AND THEY SAID NOTHING.
2. Those of us who researched the 2004 Ohio election for years & concluded that the results were in all likelihood not accurate - needed someone of @JohnKerry's stature to speak out - yet he did not until now. He allowed ppl to call it a #conspiracytheory & said nothing.
3. An excerpt from my documentary demonstrating that in most counties in Ohio in the 2004 election the handcount did not match the machine count. hollerbackfilm.com/film-clips-1/ Many activists & a few journalists have worked for years to get this message out. Where was @JohnKerry?

1/4 WHY WE CAN'T MAKE PROGRESS ON #ELECTIONSECURITY @CNBC!! Because of constant misrepresentation of facts by media outlets like YOU cnbc.com/2018/08/17/how… "it's actually quite difficult for outsiders to directly manipulate votes/voting machines aren't connected to the internet"
2/4 Here, @SEGreenhalgh, an #ElectionSecurity expert debunks that myth. in an interview I did with her at #defcon2018.
3/4 See also this excellent article by @KimZetter The Myth of the Hacker-4Proof Voting Machine. The key word in that headline is #Myth. nytimes.com/2018/02/21/mag…

1. The #SecureElectionsAct is being postponed & WATERED DOWN
"Blunt unveiled his amended version of the legislation last week, which removes the initial version's requirement that states conduct post-election #audits w/ paper records." thehill.com/policy/cyberse… via @secureourvotes
2. #Audits are not an optional side issue to leave off, like deciding not to have fries with your burger. AUDITS are the central component of how we need to verify elections. This is like pizza with no cheese, and no crust. It is just tomato sauce.
3. When you see the latest video I've produced about how easy it is to hack optical scanners you will understand. You will really really understand why we need audits. Coming soon...

Thread 1/5 On Friday a judge ruled that the destruction of ballots in @Tim_Canova race was illegal. The judge said that #BrendaSnipes the #BrowardCounty Supervisor of Elections' defenses were “without substance in fact or law." hollerbackfilm.com/blog/canovawin…
2/5 @MarcACaputo @politico is reporting that @FLGovScott says he will have #BrendaSnipes the #BrowardCounty Supervisor of Elections' office monitored. politico.com/states/florida…
3/5 The winning case is built around multiple public records requests that I did & one that @Tim_Canova and I filed together. I wanted to examine #ballots in his race due to statistical irregularities a #data team I led found in the #election results hollerbackfilm.com/blog/wass-can
