Subject: Letter to Sec. Cortes
Dear Secretary Pedro Cortes,
I'm writing to ask your office to put in writing a very simple and obvious statement for our County Council Meeting scheduled for 5PM, Tuesday June 17th. At the meeting council will vote on a "Sense of Council" asking our division of elections to verify our voting software prior to this November's presidential election.
is a transcript from
the task, however, at the BOE meeting, Tim Johnson laid the responsibility with your office.
In a subsequent meeting that you held with Paul O'Hanlon, Marybeth Kuznik, and Celeste Taylor I understand you were asked if the responsibility for verifying the software was at the state level and, my understanding is that you said the counties are responsible for verification of the software.
Will you state in writing that: "Counties are responsible for managing secure and accurate elections..." ?
It would be helpful to have this by Tuesday at 5 PM for the next Council meeting... I believe an email to either At-Large Councilman and BOE member:
Councilman Chuck Martoni would be wonderfully sufficient.
Sincerely and Appreciatively,
START TRANSCRIPT OF
Richard King: Has the software ever been verified and will this be done prior to November?
John DeFazio: On that question, Mark or anyone?
Johnson: Iíll address Richard. We are working with the
that discussion before this election and there has been communication between
the manufacturer and the
Richard King: Thank you very much.
Richard King, Ph.D.
