Paper ballots are superior for security than the machines that can be hacked by preteens in 15 minuets. But if you insist on weak unsecured electronics, American made is theoretically better. As long as it’s Americans cheating, it’s fine, right? Because that’s what this bill is saying. P.S. I’m glad to see that most people realize that this is a BS bill. I was being sarcastic in my response, but, the common chorus of people calling for paper ballots on both the Yea and Nay sides prove that the electronic machines Country of origin is clearly not what concerns most of us in regards to election security. The fact is that the electronic machines have all the weaknesses of electronics. They are hackable, programmable, unverifiable, unsecured and mutable. For those states that lack a strong paper trail, your elections are fundamentally unproven. Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia have little to no paper trail. 15 states, literally a third of our states, 198 electoral votes, cannot validate their elections. It takes 270 electoral votes to win the presidency and we have nearly 200 electoral votes that cannot really be proven. When you consider this list the concern that most of us have cannot be dismissed. Our elections need to be physically verifiable. That is what we actually care about.
