Stein recount campaign demands PA protect right to paper ballots

From Voting Justice:

Jill Stein and the 2016 recount team announced today that they have served notice to the state of Pennsylvania that the ES&S ExpressVote XL voting machine, recently recertified by the state, violates the terms of the settlement agreement in Stein v. Cortés. This 2018 settlement of the Stein recount lawsuit guarantees all Pennsylvania voters the right to voter-verifiable, auditable paper ballots by the 2020 election. Against public outcry and expert warnings, Philadelphia County has decided to purchase ExpressVote XL machines for use by all voters. The state has 30 days to respond, after which the plaintiffs can ask the federal court that brokered the agreement to enforce it.

Against public outcry and expert warnings

Against public outcry & expert warnings, #Philadelphia is attempting to ram new voting machines down voters’ throats that CANNOT BE VERIFIED. That means if these machines are used in the 2020 election, there will be no way to know if the election results are true! #StopTheMachine

Can you believe voting machine corporations…

Can you believe voting machine corporations are still in court trying to gag us from making any public statements about our upcoming examination of voting machine software? How can we trust our elections if the privately-owned software that counts votes is shielded from scrutiny?

When Hurricane Maria ravaged Puerto Rico

When Hurricane Maria ravaged Puerto Rico, a US colony, Trump & the Republican Congress let 1000s die & didn’t restore power for 11 MONTHS.

Now the same people are using a blackout to push Venezuelans toward civil war… while strangling them with sanctions! Incredible hypocrisy.


US media have spent two years warning about foreign enemies

US media have spent 2 years warning about how foreign enemies could sabotage our electric grid with cyberattacks. Yet when #Venezuela‘s gov’t, targeted for regime change, claimed its grid was sabotaged, US media immediately dismissed it as a conspiracy theory. See how that works?

2016 Ballot Access & Electoral College Count

I took the ballot access map Penny posted yesterday to the Community and dropped everything into a spreadsheet. As of today (Aug 31), we’re at a total of 475 potential electors, counting both states where we’ll appear on the ballot, and write-in states.

Update (9/1/16): Connecticut accepted our petition, and we’re on the ballot! I’ve updated the spreadsheet with new totals. The write-in and on-ballot total is now 482 electors.
