EPIC Urges Georgia Court to Ensure Ballot Secrecy in Primary

In an amicus brief, EPIC has asked a Georgia federal court to protect the secret ballot. Plaintiffs presented the court with evidence that Georgia's ballot-marking devices, which rely on large display screens, make voter choices easily viewable by others in the polling place. EPIC wrote in the amicus that "the right to cast a secret ballot in a public election is a core value in the United States." This is the second amicus brief EPIC has submitted in the case, Curling v. Raffensperger. In the earlier amicus brief, EPIC urged the court to stop Georgia's use of Direct Recording Electronic voting machine, which EPIC explained were unreliable and easily hacked. The court ruled that Georgia must replace those voting machines before the 2020 election.
