The Question of Paper Ballots In Georgia Part 1

Dominion Voting Systems inherited mistrust from the voting system which preceded it. The previous system was declared by a federal judge to violate due process and equal protection guaranteed by the 14th Amendment. And then Georgia jumped from the voting frying pan into the voting fire by selecting Dominion Voting Systems.

O.C.G.A. 21-2-300 (a) (2) requires that voting systems produce a ballot readable by the voter. Dominion produces a printed paper but the actual vote is hidden in a QR code which is proprietary and can not be read by other readers. Cell phones are not allowed in voting areas but even if they were no reader a voter might have on their cell would be able to read the vote. The printed ballot is merely a print command which the voter is without the ability to verify contrary to law.

Athens-Clarke County attempted to revert to paper ballots which law allows based on the machines not being able to be configured with the required additional equipment in a way that would provide privacy while voting as required by law. Athens-Clarke County met head on the ire of the Secretary of State and the State Election Board. The Secretary of State called a hearing. March 11 parts 1 and 2.
