"[P]aper ballots are the best available technology for casting votes. We use two main kinds of paper systems in different parts of the U.S. Either voters fill out a ballot paper that gets scanned into a computer for counting (optical scan voting), or they vote on a computer that counts the vote and prints a record on a piece of paper (called a voter-verifiable paper audit trail). Either way, the paper creates a record of the vote that can’t be later modified by any bugs, misconfiguration, or malicious software that might have infected the machines. "After the election, human beings can examine the paper to make sure the results from the voting machines accurately determined who won. Just as you want the brakes in your car to keep working even if the car’s computer goes haywire, accurate vote counts must remain available even if the machines are malfunctioning or attacked. In both cases, common sense tells us we need some kind of physical backup system. I and other election security experts have been advocating for paper ballots for years, and today, about 70% of American voters live in jurisdictions that keep a paper record of every vote."

The researchers have coined the term “computational propaganda” to describe the explosion of deceptive social media campaigns on services like Facebook and Twitter.... In the case of the American election, the researchers noted that “highly automated accounts — the accounts that tweeted 450 or more times with a related hashtag and user mention during the data collection period — generated close to 18 percent of all Twitter traffic about the presidential election.” They also noted that bots tend to circulate negative news much more effectively than positive reports. One of the consequences of the intense social media campaigns will be a rise in what social scientists call “selective affinity.” “Clinton supporters will cut the Trump supporters out of their network, and Trump supporters will do the same,” Dr. Howard said. “The polarization of the election is going to make this stuff worse as we self-groom our news networks.”

We Can't Wait: Make Change Today
"Earlier this year, MTPC launched our ID Project, to help trans and gender nonconforming people change their names and gender markers on state and federal identity documents. Through this project, we pair community members with volunteers who are trained and willing to help in the navigation of this process: from filling out documents, to going with them to court, and everything in between. Since its launch, we've had a number of people sign up and begin the process. "But now, with the dramatic influx of need, we are struggling to meet all the requests. We need your help to make sure that everyone has access to the protections and support they need. Additionally, as with many processes, changing a name and gender marker is not free: - there are court fees, charges for copies of documents, and so much more. "So now we turn to you, our community and allies, to help MTPC. We need your help to manage all the incoming calls, requests, and coordination. We need to make funds available for community members unable to afford this vital process. We need you to help us make change today, before it's too late. "

#Our100
"Our work did not start, and has not ended, with this election. Women built upon longstanding community and family networks to lead community-based voter programs. We’ve known that women of color represent 74 percent of the growth in eligible women voters since 2000. In more than 100 cities, across all 50 states, women came together to mobilize and inspire turnout, creating an unprecedented gender and racial gap at the polls. "Women did this work, not to get one woman a new job, but because we understood the stakes in this election. Black lives, women’s lives, immigrant’s lives, the lives of LGBTQ folks, of people with disabilities; of working people of every race, region and ethnicity, including those at Standing Rock and others protecting our land. We know that the future and well-being of this country depends on the health and well-being of all women."

Louisiana isn’t letting immigrants get married - The Washington Post
"[A]s of this year, any foreign-born person wanting to get married in Louisiana must produce both an unexpired visa (even though a federal court has ruled that marriage licenses cannot be denied based on immigration status), as well as, somewhat inexplicably, a birth certificate." "No birth certificate, no marriage, no excuses. "The law has indeed placed marriage off-limits to immigrants in the country illegally, as intended. But it’s hurt plenty of legal immigrants, too. Louisiana is home to thousands of refugees, predominantly Vietnamese and Laotians who received asylum in the 1970s and 1980s after fleeing war and communism in their homelands. "Today these Louisianans often have green cards and even U.S. citizenship, but no access to their original birth documents, if such documents even exist."

"We ... worked with our colleagues to review many tax returns of presidential nominees for cabinet and other positions. Based on the few pages of Donald J. Trump’s 1995 tax returns that have become public, we have come to the conclusion that no one in his position would have been nominated, much less confirmed by the Senate, during either of the administrations we served. The same is true of any modern administration of a president from either party."

'Birth of a Nation' Website Dishonors Black Female Activists, Quotes Wikipedia (Guest Column) | Hollywood Reporter
Great piece by Danielle McGuire, who writes, "If this is the kind of history 'curriculum' Parker and Fox Searchlight have in mind, then Parker’s dream of using his film to plumb the horrors of the past to understand our present will fail. Instead, he will have created just another film that uses women and the defense of women’s bodily integrity as a prop to glorify male violence. And how different is that premise from the one put forward in D.W. Griffith’s 1915 Birth of a Nation?"

Peter Henner | The Altamont Enterprise
I wish I could not post this and have it therefore not be true that Peter Henner has died. He was just 64. He was remarkable by any estimation—as should be evident in this obituary. He was also one of my father's closest friends. My parents saw Peter through difficult times when he was young and as a result he declared himself their attorney at no cost for life. Peter was also a friend to me in my childhood and adulthood. He acted as my lawyer twice: to fight the ticket I got on 90 West, outside Albany, when I was speeding home to be with my father on his deathbed (we lost) and to submit a barrage of FOIA requests to the FBI that eventually unearthed details of my father's civil rights work in Alabama and of the anti-communist surveillance he and my mother were subject to in the 1950s. I can't say I believe in an afterlife where spirits of the dead reunite, but if there is one Peter and my dad will be found there arguing politics and disturbing the heavenly peace.

Cuse Community - Emmett Till Act Reauthorization Briefing
I'll be a panelist at this Congressional briefing on Monday in DC. It's free and open to the public, but requires pre-registration (at the link), preferably by today. "This special briefing event brings together the Coalition for Emmett Till Reauthorization act, members of the House of Representatives and investigative journalists who believe it is necessary to pass the Emmett Till Unsolved Civil Rights Crimes Reauthorization Act of 2016. The passage of the Bill will support the efforts of families and advocates who seek justice for racially-motivated killings of loved ones during the Civil Rights Era and beyond."
