Illinois: Chicago and Cook County Set To Start Early Voting with Illegal Sequoia Voting Machines

By Illinois Ballot Integrity Project

October 15, 2006

When the earliest of Early Voters in Cook County and Chicago vote Monday morning they will encounter a brand new touch-screen voting machine, the Sequoia AVC Edge II Plus. The "Edge Plus" is so new that it’s not among those machines certified by the Illinois State Board of Elections for purchase by local election jurisdictions like Chicago and Suburban Cook County.

And that’s a problem according to Larry Quick, state chair of the Illinois Ballot Integrity Project. "Electronic voting machine vendors have consistently violated the law by pushing the sale of uncertified voting systems and components throughout Illinois, and local officials have collaborated by signing contracts that are in violation of the Illinois Election Code." Quick added, "The purchase of electronic voting equipment that hasn’t been certified as to accuracy, reliability and security represents a clear lack of concern for voting integrity by these election jurisdictions."



VOTE TRUST USA HAS THE STORY
