Phone Script for Asm. Phil Ting
State Assemblyman Phil Ting (CA Assembly District 19)
Call Asm. Phil Ting about bills and policy in California.
Hello, my name is _______ and my zip code is _______. I am part of Indivisible SF.
I am calling to urge Assembly member Ting to vote for the State Assembly Budget Committee to expedite a publicly-owned Open Source Ballot voting system, by fully funding the $8 million in matching funds to one CA county for its development.
The matching funds would only be eligible to develop a system licensed so that all counties can freely use and build on it to lower costs and increase security and confidence in elections.
An open-source paper ballot voting system will be more secure and transparent than secret proprietary software from corporate vendors, and will reduce election expenses and increase confidence in the fairness and accuracy of our votes.
