‘You SHOULD be freaking out!’ Alyssa Milano accidentally makes a STELLAR case for Voter ID

Oh, good grief.

This woman.

Guess we should just be glad she’s not tweeting about gun control or the ERA …

And who knew she supports Voter ID?

IMPORTANT QUESTION: Is the possibility of Russia tampering with the midterm elections freaking you out?

It should be freaking you out.

It’s a real possibility.

Read on.

OMG THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING.

It’s never been more important to make sure people have to present a legal form of photo ID when they vote. Right Alyssa?

I feel the need to point out (again) that our voting system is vulnerable to attack.  Citizens of 13 states will be voting in the midterms on insecure, obsolete, hackable, paperless voting machines that cannot be recounted.

And we’ve never needed Voter ID more than we do right now.

We’re with you, Alyssa.

#VoterIDShouldBeTheLaw

Here’s an excellent 5 minute video called, “I Hacked an Election.  So Can the Russians.” It shows how you can REMOTELY rig a paperless Diebold voting machine.  These are the same machines that will be used by all Georgian voters in the 2018 midterms. https://t.co/UUuYjKxMIB

Did she really tweet out a YouTube video on this?

K.

What makes this frustrating is that we know how to make our voting system resilient against all attacks. We need a) paper ballots everywhere, b) secure chain of custody of those ballots c) Risk Limiting Audits (RLAs)

D) Voter ID

There is a bipartisan bill called the Secure Elections Act that has been introduced in the Senate that would address the insecurity of our elections. https://t.co/Z0LDHJbaEI

From The HIll:

“Election security is national security and our intelligence officials have made clear that our election systems continue to be a target for foreign adversaries,” Klobuchar said, adding, “With only 151 days until the next election, we must act now.”

Continued …

The NDAA amendment also differs from past versions by expanding the Election Assistance Commission’s current Technical Guidelines Development Committee and renaming it the Technical Advisory Board.

This entity replaces the advisory panel originally proposed by the senators to offer states recommendations for securing their systems, which would have been housed at the Department of Homeland Security.

The amendment would also create a floor requiring states conduct post-election audits of federal elections beginning in 2020, with the option for states to waive the requirement until 2022. The measure does not, however, specify how states must go about auditing the federal results.

So it doesn’t exactly do a whole lot.

Typical.

LISTEN TO ME…there is nothing that can stop Russia from hacking our elections again. Russia is an existential threat that we ignore at our peril.

Actually, Voter ID would go a long way in preventing voter fraud, even from those pesky and sneaky Russians but notice she doesn’t actually mention it herself. She does, however, make an excellent case for those of us who do push for Voter ID and voter registration purges like the SCOTUS just sided with in Ohio.

We need universal voter ID, an auditable paper trail for votes cast and every part of the voting process kept as far from the internet as possible.

She may support the second point if any 🙄

We’ll catch those sneaky Russians yet!
