California Secretary of State Office Biography

Position:
Pro to the question "Do Electronic Voting Machines Improve the Voting Process?"
Reasoning:

Parallel monitoring is an important security measure that we employ to ensure the reliability of the electronic voting machines used throughout California. The voters should have the confidence of knowing that we are closely monitoring these machines to ensure their integrity and reliability even after we certify them for use in the state’s elections… The results conclude that the tested equipment recorded the votes with 100% accuracy.
