DEMAND PAPER BALLOT VOTING!
Allegheny County's CHIEF EX. DAN ONORATO, AGAIN, wants to buy an UNSAFEGUARDED voting system without paper ballots.
The BOE will meet on Friday, 6PM, 119 of the County Court House to decide to purchase the iVotronic machine. Onorato is counting on John Defazio to vote with him.
Tell John Defazio to SAY NO TO PAPERLESS DRES...
SAY YES, ONLY TO OPTICAL SCAN VOTING.
Optical Scan is the only Paper Ballot system that we can purchase or use in PA today. Paper ballots form checks and balances for electronic voting. Op scan is the most cost-effective, secure, reliable and auditable voting.
Optical scan is the only voting system with a meaningful audit or recount. Avoiding recounts is not a valid reason for not choosing optical scan. Candidates are entitled to recounts and voters are entitled to see a permanent record of their vote to provide backup reliability in case of electronic glitches and to prevent fraud.
*Onorato/DeFazio plan to purchase iVotronic voting machines that dont have paper ballots and may never have them. Their plan is to wait for stalled legislation to pass (SB977), then will ES&S have to develop a new printer to submit for certification which may or may not be certified. Their present printer will not pass certification. Once again, Onorato has presented a farce of a plan for paper ballots in Allegheny County - Political cover for a fraud prone voting system. Don't let them get away with this.
Optical Scan costs less, is most secure, and is the most used system in the country, as well as the best ADA compliant system, why wouldn't the county buy it?
EITHER THEY DONT WANT RECOUNTS, OR THEY DONT WANT SAFEGUARDED ELECTIONS.
Recounts and audits are the standard for integrity in elections. they simply must happen.
