How do we get rid of paperless ballot machines in Tennessee? – missing Nashville


How do we get rid of paperless ballot machines in Tennessee?

The fact that voting machines don't at least spit out a receipt you can check before depositing in a back up bin. This has long seemed incomprehensible. Why is there no physical means for a recount?

Now we have the modern hacking phenomenon making the danger all to real. It's just popped up in Georgia, where a lawsuit to overturn the 6th Congressional District run off has been filed.

Let's assume it's necessary to supplant the current voting machines used in Tennessee (assuming they are of the type I see in Davidson County). Furthermore, let it be granted that this assumption is so unassailable that no argument to the contrary needs to be taken seriously.

Still, rationality is unlikely to just happen without action. So where do we start? Who do we write? Where do we protest?

It would appear that protest in the form of not voting would be a problem. At the same time, agreeing to put the matter to a vote in the current context would… well, you can see.
