.@BrennanCenter endorsed the #PAVEAct, which wld ban machine-marked “paper ballots” from barcode voting and/or hybrid voting systems. But it continues w/ this sort of messaging, which suggests that any sort of “back-up paper records” will do. I hope they will change this soon. 1/

.@BrennanCenter could make an enormous difference if it came out and acknowledged that barcode voting and hybrid systems are unreasonably insecure & thus not a reasonable accommodation for voters with disabilities, much less an acceptable choice for use by all voters. 3/
Counting votes w/ barcodes & running paper ballots under the printer head after they are cast is unnecessary & makes voting unreasonably insecure. We could use a group w/ @BrennanCenter’s name recognition & reach to speak out before more jurisdictions buy these systems. 4/
