To solve a modern threat to American elections, look to old-fashioned paper ballots.
From Lt Col Tony Shaffer (ret)
Acting President, The London Center,
Adviser to the 2020 campaign of Donald Trump.
To the Georgia Senate and House of Representatives
On the morning of Election Day in 2016, President Trump made a clear statement on a vital issue for our nation’s civic life. Speaking to Fox News, he wholeheartedly endorsed paper ballots for American voting. The President said: “There’s something really nice about the old paper ballot system… You don’t worry about hacking.”
GEORGIA SECRETARY OF STATE ISSUES WILDLY MISLEADING COST ANALYSIS ON HAND MARKED PAPER BALLOTS
February 27, 2019 - Georgia Secretary of State Raffensperger is circulating a cost analysis of hand-marked paper ballots that is profoundly misleading and wildly inflates the costs of conducting elections with hand-marked paper ballots as compared with the cost of electronic ballot marking devices to mark all ballots. The analysis the Secretary provided is deeply flawed on many levels, but in the interest of brevity we will focus on the two most egregiously misleading and disingenuous aspects of this estimate.

STATES MUST SPEND THE MONEY ON SECURE VOTING SYSTEMS THAT PROVIDE PAPER BALLOTS & STRONG AUDITS
Cyber security experts agree: America’s computerized voting technology is aging, outdated, and highly vulnerable to undetectable rigging as well as hacking, both domestic and foreign.
The Bipartisan Alliance to Secure Elections (BASE) is the only national movement uniting across party lines to defend American elections from manipulation that undermines our system of governance, and erodes faith in our institutions.
We are citizens, organizations, lawmakers, computer scientists and elections officials putting country before party to achieve achieve common sense, urgently needed election reforms.
