As I understand it, the Microsoft "fix" gives u an option to check whether ur own ballot was counted correctly, but not anyone else's And the way the crypto works, u can’t prove to anybody else how u voted, so there's no remedy. The system also must be implemented correctly. 1/

I've heard that Scytl has been caught implementing this type of system incorrectly more than once, but don't have the links yet for that. 2/

I hope @rad_atl and @philipbstark will let me know if I have anything wrong about this. 3/

I hope they can also let us know if this Microsoft feature only works with #HandMarkedPaperBallots, as I believe that's the case. 4/
