Taking a moment to remember this momentous court ruling last yr that finally banned paperless, non-auditable voting machines that were used in Georgia since 2002. Georgia, and Pennsylvania, for the first time this year now have a paper backup of their machine votes.

The new machines Georgia is using statewide aren’t perfect - there are still election integrity issues with them. But having a paper backup is an improvement over having no paper trail at all. Same in Pennsylvania.

To be clear, Georgia had already passed the law, with nearly 100% GOP support and only 2 Democratic votes, to move to a secure paper ballot system. We had started procuring it in Feb. The court had ZERO to do with it.

As I recall, the court made it clear in 2017 that this was the direction it was heading. Georgia was on notice that the status quo with its machines was not going to be acceptable.

It's almost like, 20 years after 2000, we're 75% of the way to fixing the problems IDed then.

I like the machines in Nevada. It makes a paper record of your vote, and the system asks you to confirm the paper record with the digital record before committing your vote.

Wait a court ruled that evotes required a paper trail? Isn't that encroaching on state legislatures? The Supreme Court should throw out all of these illegal evotes which would leave only the mail-in paper ballots as legit

We have this system in Illinois. Makes me feel very comfortable that my ballot has been cast correctly and cannot be changed.
