NEW YORK, NY (05/11/2022) (readMedia)-- Tomorrow, Common Cause/NY will join with Public Advocate Jumaane Williams, Domincanos and Chinese-American Planning Council to push the New York State legislature to pass legislation (??A1115/S309B) that will ban All-in-One Voting machines: machines that incorporate both a printer and scanner in one voting machine. The bill is scheduled to pass the Senate for a second year in a row. The Assembly has yet to vote on it.
Cyber security election experts almost universally pan the touch screen technology, so much so that most states have switched back to hand-marked paper ballots. These machines, in addition to costing the taxpayer exorbitant amounts of money, are likely to result in long lines and problems at the polls. Last year, the NYSBOE voted against certifying the ExpressVote XL, an all-in-one machine.
