This is especially disturbing for us in Shelby County, especially since the machines in use for our last election have been banned in Georgia due to 2 cases of hacking.  Appeal of lawsuit is still pending, unless decision reached since this article was published, December 9, 2018

"SAVE alleged the AccuVote-TSx R7 direct-recording electronic voting machines and Diebold GEMS voting software utilized by Shelby County fail to meet statutory requirements because they do not create a “voter verified paper audit trail,” and store votes solely on removable memory cards."

I don't think the SCEC has its act together at all! We need machine scanned paper ballot system. http://www.shiningalightongermantown.com/2020/07/sarah-freeman-germantown-citizen-on.html

It is very interesting that several posts have been made on various social media sites that indicate there are problems where votes are showing a different candidate than the one the voter selected. So far the race vote changes reported by voters have been a Germantown Alderman race?  One  race is the same race that a certain sitting SCEC member held a fundraiser for as well as donated to. Coincidence? If only investigative authorities would have investigated after the last election with the same kind of issues perhaps the mystery would have been solved.

PAPER BALLOTS would be more reliable, verifiable and cost less.  So why is our SCEC Administrator pushing for a certain touch screen system.

Contrary to what Ms. Phillips and other members of the SCEC assert, paper ballots are more secure, more economical, more voter-friendly, and with fewer and shorter lines at the polls. Purchasing BMDs is a prescription for disaster built on misleading information.
