Smoking Gun: Florida Was Warned About E-Vote Defect

The Smoking Gun in Sarasota County, FL has emerged. Cristine Jennings attorneys are correct - voting machine malfunction did cause the 14% undervote rate that altered the election outcome. No wonder FL officials refused to allow an independent examination of the machines- because FL officials KNEW long before November, that the ES&S ivotronic machines were malfunctioning because they had made a deliberate decision to ignore the warnings that ES&S had given them; and had ignored ES&S recommendations to warn voters or to upgrade the software prior to the election. Joyce McCloy of North Carolina deserves our thanks for being persistent enough to expose this letter. I hope that the US Congress stands up for voters rights and requires a re-election in Sarasota County, FL for this US House race.

FL-13: Company Warned of Touch-Screen Voting System Defect, But Sarasota Declined to Fix Machines or Caution Voters FULL LETTER POSTED: ES&S Urged State, Local Officials to Take Corrective Measures Three Months Prior to Contested Jennings/Buchanan Race Last November Election Integrity Advocate's Warning About Bug Also Ignored Both Before and After Election...

Melinda Henneberger at Huffington Post runs a news item today concerning an August 2006 letter from the voting machine company ES&S to Florida Elections officials warning about a defect in the iVotronic touch-screen voting machine which succeeded in losing the votes of some 18,000 voters in the razor-thin election between Christine Jennings (D) and Vern Buchanan (R) in Florida's 13th U.S. House Congressional district. Buchanan was provisionally seated, pending a Congressional challenge and state lawsuit filed by Jennings, after he was declared the "winner" by 369 votes.

Sarasota, FL's Election Supervisor, Kathy Dent, decided against both having their machines patched to take care of the defect and posting a warning notice for voters as advised by ES&S. "No one in the State of Florida updated," their machines after receiving the letter, Dent told Henneberger. "That's because it was too close to the election. It was a state decision that it was too late to make changes."

Further, The BRAD BLOG posts the letter from ES&S in full, along with frustrated comments from the Election Integrity advocate who had been trying to get the attention of both Florida officials and Jennings' legal team who were both investigating the matter.

"I sent that memo (and my concerns) to anyone I could think of," McCloy explained told us "and this year to every election reform list serve that I could, posted it on political message boards. I asked and asked - has this bug been fixed?"...
