😳”It's outrageous. They're wiping all of the software,’ @MarilynRMarks1 tells [ @TheBradBlog] & installing ‘new software that's just been written, has not been tested, & has not been certified by the Elections Assistance Commission.’” gapol 1/ https://twitter.com/thebradblog/status/1311852598845034497
“‘As far as we know, it has not even been submitted for approval. This is federal certification, and Georgia, like most states, is not supposed to be using systems not certified by the federal government.’” 2/
"’They've written this over a weekend, and have not thoroughly tested it. There's been no user testing. The number of things that can go wrong will take up more time than your show permits,’she says.” 3/

9/ BTW, apologists for Georgia’s crap new system imply it’s all fine bc GA will “audit” one race-chosen by @GASecofState (R)—every 2 years. The new touchscreen voting machines (as opposed to the new scanners) can’t be audited reliably anyway. 😡
10/ . @CoalitionGoodGv is trying to get to the bottom of this new uncertified voting machine software. It has a pending suit asking that GA use #HandMarkedPaperBallots rather than its risky new touchscreens.
