Election Security Bill Without Paper Records and Risk Limiting Audits? No Way.
AUGUST 20, 2018

*** begin quote ***

Risk Limiting Audits: Besides building a paper trail for each and every vote cast, actually checking that paper trail must become an automatic part of every election. This is made practical by the most important innovation in election security in recent years: risk limiting audits. Done properly, risk limiting audits allow us to achieve high confidence that an election result is correct through the audit of a small, well-chosen sample of ballots. This makes audits cheaper and quicker, allowing them to be part of every election. Regularizing these audits will increase voter confidence in our democratic system.

And let’s have picture voter id too.  Can’t get on a plane without it and how much more important is an election.

I think both the D’s and the R’s want the ability to fudge.
