Paper Ballot Bill for Integrity in Voting

Posted: March 3, 2014 in Uncategorized

Paper Ballot Bill needs more witness forms:

The Public Hearing at the Missouri Capitol for this bill will NOT be tomorrow at 8:15 as planned. It will likely be next Tuesday, March 11th instead.

PLEASE, if you have not filled out a witness form, do so here, so that we can share your thoughts with the House Election Committee:

We have heard from several computer savvy Missouri folk who are speaking from their experiences with computers and computer programming regarding the “back doors” that software developers put into virtually all their work. “These “back-doors” are what hackers use to gain access, manipulate, and alter the stored information on our electronic systems,” wrote one gentleman who then went on to quote from a New York Times article, “The Year of Hacking, by the Numbers,” by N. Perlroth, on April 22, 2013, which stated:
“Security experts like to say that there are only two types of companies left in the United States: those that have been hacked and those that don’t know they’ve been hacked.”

With these back doors, and momentary access to one of these DREs, a knowledgeable individual or individuals would be able to flip votes in any amount, preference being just enough to win, but not too much to cause suspicion.

We must have hand-marked paper ballots in Missouri if we are to have any basis of integrity for our vote. Cleaning up voter roles and proper identification of voters are important too, but will be pointless if we leave this gaping hole for virtually undetectable fraud in our system.

WE NEED MANY MORE WITNESS FORMS! PLEASE FILL YOURS OUT TODAY AND SPREAD THE WORD! (Unfortunately there is resistance to this common sense bill, so it’s up to us to speak out loudly!)


If you are still going to Jefferson City tomorrow, please consider testifying on the bill by Joe Don McGaugh that would prohibit the use of electronic signatures on Online Voter Registrations.

HB 1739 Electronic Signatures

Cosponsor: Sue Entlicher
House Hearing Rooom #5
Time 8:15am
Authorizes an election authority to accept voter registration applications with electronic signatures under certain conditions. (Note: this bill is designed to put conditions on the use of electronic signatures because they can look totally different from someones on-paper signature.)
