Office of the Southington, Connecticut Registrar of Voters Biography

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

“We loved the machines and hope that the State of Connecticut adopts them or at least allows them to be used. We will not hesitate to recommend that our town buys them for future use. As you know, as Registrars we would not favor anything that we felt would add to our Election Day problems. We are convinced that using the Avante machines will eliminate problems rather than add to them.”
