Here are the races I'm watching especially closely in November. Please share yours too. I may add them to my list! Thanks.

@TonyEvers v. Scott Walker (Koch-funded, anti-LGBTQ) for Wisconsin governor.

@IronStache v. Bryan Steill for #WI01 1/
@AndrewGillum v. Ron DeSantis ("Let's not monkey it up") for Florida governor

@SenBillNelson v. current governor Rick Scott (Koch-funded, notorious polluter) for U.S. senator from Florida 2/
@SenatorKelly (Laura Kelly) v. Kris Kobach (master vote suppressor, crosscheck mastermind, voter suppression commission) for Kansas governor.

@ShariceDavids v. Kevin Yoder (Yoder is the House member who approved Trump's diversion of FEMA $$$ 2 detention centers) for #KS03 3/
@StaceyAbrams v. Brian Kemp (voter purger, paperless voting machine defender) for Georgia governor.

@LucyMcBath v. Karen Handel (white nationalist who silenced the House audio of immigrant children crying & who "won" her seat after a "glitch" in Fulton County) for #GA06 4/
@gretchenwhitmer v. Bill Schuette (Trump endorsed, stymied the 2016 Michigan hand recount, used footage from opponent's sexual assault testimony in a new attack ad) for Michigan governor. 5/
@HarleyRouda v. Dana Rohrabacker (Putin's #1 Congressman) for #CA48

@AndrewJantz v. Devin Nunes (bending over backwards to kill the Mueller investigation) for #CA22

6/
@BetoORourke v. Ted Cruz (backed by the Mercers, sponsored bill to make it legal to discriminate against LGBTQ, anti-choice even in cases of rape) for U.S. senate, Texas
7/
@PhilBredesen v Marsha Blackburn (top ten #Koch recipient) for U.S. senate, Tennessee.

@RichCordray v Mike DeWine (supported running mate Husted's massive voter purge, appealed expansion of early voting) for Ohio governor. 8/
@dannyoconnor1 v. Troy Balderson for #OH12 (this race is highly flippable; O'Connor came close to defeating Balderson in the special election a few months ago). 9/
@kathleenclyde v. Frank LaRose for Ohio Secretary of State. (LaRose is the right-hand man for the current SOS, notorious voter purger Jon Husted who turned off the voting machine audit functions in 2016. )10/
13/ correction on post 1: correct handle for Democrat Tony Evers is @Tony4WI!! He is competing against Scott Walker for Wisconsin governor. A must watch race in November, including from an election integrity angle.
16/ Alabama governor race. John Merrill (R), the current governor, observed elections in Russia before the 2016 election and refused to turn on voting machine audit functions for the Moore v. Doug Jones race.

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/ news.northeastern.edu/2018/06/18/tir…
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 elections.wi.gov/sites/default/…
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. drive.google.com/file/d/1-Fd8a8… 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/
