UNION COUNTY — Voting machine flaws discovered in the February 2008 presidential race have not been corrected, according to a Democratic candidate for County Clerk.
Lisa McCormick, who is on the Column B Democrats for Change team in the June 8 Democratic primary election, said faulty computerized voting machines should not be used.
“My opponent testified in court that these Sequoia Advantage voting machines are unreliable, yet she has failed to address the problem,” said McCormick. “After 27 years in the courthouse, our County Clerk has developed tolerance for unacceptable performance.”
McCormick said incumbent Joanne Rajoppi failed to exercise proper care when the county spent millions of dollars buying 500 bad machines in 1998.
“As County Clerk I will not just talk about problems that threaten the integrity of the voting process,” said McCormick. “I will seek to replace unreliable electronic voting machines with a system that is less expensive and more trustworthy.”
“Citizens deserve to know that their votes count,” said McCormick. “Elections are not lotteries to be decided by chance. We need to know the public is always faithfully obeyed.”
McCormick said the 2000 election result in Florida caused grave injury to our nation because of a lack of the integrity in the voting process.”
“A proper election could have saved the world from eight years of George W. Bush,” said the Democrat. “That priceless value would have saved millions of dollars and countless lives.”
