Dear @SpeakerPelosi: When People for the American Way and @DailyKos told their members that voting machine vendors had installed wireless modems in election systems, 30K people wrote to the EAC to demand a ban. 1/ https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost/paloma/the-cybersecurity-202/2019/05/30/the-cybersecurity-202-democratic-base-fired-up-by-effort-to-ban-internet-connected-voting-machines/5cef29301ad2e52231e8e870/ …
And they did so on just a few days’ notice. 2/
3/ Imagine what voters might do if you employed a similar strategy of informing the electorate of the specific and blatantly irresponsible ways that vendors have made our elections ridiculously insecure. Pls deploy a #KnowledgeIsPower strategy to protect our votes.
4/ Pls also draft a companion House bill to the #PAVEAct.
5/ Whereas the EAC’s guidelines are voluntary, the #PAVEAct would actually ban internet connectivity in election equipment in 2020. I don’t believe either HR1 or the Secure Elections Act would do this.
9/ From August 2018:
