Our legislature secretly amended AB-840, which was originally an innocuous bill cleaning up some language, to include a MAJOR CHANGE to election audits in California.
They propose that the audits include ONLY the Early VBM and Polls ballots, while omitting the later VBM and provisional ballots. In other words, to make the violations by Michael Vu become legal. I am attaching my somewhat lengthy document which includes recommended changes.
I suggest you immediately send an email like this:
SUBJ: OPPOSE AB-840
To: Assembly Committee on Elections and Redistricting
c/o: Lori Barber
RE: OPPOSE Assembly Bill AB-840
I STRONGLY OPPOSE AB-840 which will gut the election audits in California an open them up to hacking. Please do not pass this bill! These changes will effectively exclude 40% to 70% of ballots cast from the audit process. This undermines election confidence at a time when voters need to be reassured.
Also, make the following calls
