San Mateo County (California) Elections Office Biography

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

“The new eSlate Voting System has the three qualities that are essential in a voting system to meet the new federal requirements. It is accessible, secure and easy to use. It also allows the voter to see and review a printed paper record of the votes they are casting or to confirm their choices by way of an audio playback. The printed copy is viewed through a clear cover on the printer that ensures no one can tamper with the ballot.”
