Anyone know which States have some Sequoia or Smartmatic Touchscreens?
Yahoo has the "Does Chavez own the Voting Machines" article up on front page now and after reading Will Pitt's article here yesterday it seemed to me that he made a good point that Repuglicans will challenge any county that goes Democratic voting on either Sequoia or Smartmatic.

Thought it would be good to know which states have them and if they are used in any "battleground states" like Missouri, Tennesee and Virginia that could be hotly contested races.

Anyone know?

Here's a snip and link to Yahoo front page article:

Voting Machine Companies say no ties to Chavez:
According to Smartmatic, the company is owned primarily by three individuals and their families: Antonio Mugica, a dual-Spanish-Venezuelan national who is the chief executive officer (78.8 percent); Alfredo Anzola (3.9 percent); and Roger Pinate (8.5 percent). Investor Jorge Massa as well as Smartmatic employees and other friends own the remainder.

"No foreign government or entity including Venezuela has ever held an ownership stake in Smartmatic," Mugica said in a statement.

Sequoia has operated since the late 1800s and began providing electronic voting equipment in the 1980s. It currently supplies electronic voting machines to 16 states and the District of Columbia.

"Sequoia is very confident our equipment will perform as well as it has over the course of history," Sequoia spokeswoman Michelle Shafer said.

The investigation by CFIUS was first reported Saturday by The Miami Herald. Questions about company ownership were first raised last spring.

Separately, activist Patricia Axelrod of Reno, Nev., sued Sequoia on Wednesday, claiming her vote in the 2004 general election was not counted because of a defective machine.

Shafer said Sunday she had not seen the suit and could not comment on it.

3. Chicago/Cook County

!!!

Chicago will not pay the remaining $26 million for the machines until after Nov. 7th, to see how they work. That may be a wonderful fiscal move, but what about the voters? How are voters to have confidence in an electoral process the leaders refuse to pay for?

4. Here's a list.
Edited on Mon Oct-30-06 07:16 AM by eomer
Here's a list by state and county. I don't think it is 100%. I got it at http://www.verifiedvoting.org/verifier /. You can get different data sets by changing the selections in the two dropdowns near the top of the page and then using the Download Map Data link near the bottom of the page.

The data I've excerpted here is with the first dropdown selected to "Election Equipment: Standard" and the second dropdown on its default selection of "Select a map". After I downloaded the data then I used grep to find only the records containing the word "sequoia" (case insensitive). There weren't any occurrences of "smartmatic" in the data.

5. Thanks for this list. I know NC decertified the Sequoias so won't be using
Edited on Mon Oct-30-06 07:45 AM by KoKo01
but I notice that New Jersey has them in large counties and I don't think they had voting activists that could get them out. If Menendez wins I wonder if it will be blamed on Chavez by the Repugs.

Virginia seems to have them in some of the smaller counties that might go for Allen and California has them in quite a few counties.

It's hard to know if this list has been updated for those counties who might have bought new machines because of HAVA act deadlines, though.

7. There is a difference between CITCO and CITGO - this may or
Edited on Mon Oct-30-06 08:10 AM by higher class
may not help in sorting this out.

There is a lot of cover up in learning who really owns Smartmatic - they are definitely aligned with CITCO which is not CITGO - for your edification in studying this. The following paragraphs in quotes are from the Miami Herald article - the first to bring this out - and to explain the complex ownership secrets of Smartmatic.

"CITCO is an old Dutch financial services firm based in the building Smartmatic lists as its Curacao address. (I am adding - Curacao, Netherlands Antilles in the Caribbean close to Venezuela). CITCO specializes in financial services for wealthy clients who seek confidentiality.

Smartmatic's Amsterdam address is also CITCO."

(The above is from the linked Miami Herald article).

So I entered CITCO and CITGO in a search engine and find lots of right wing rants against CITGO, but some combine both spellings in the same blog or entry.

CITCO does not appear to be CITGO.

CITCO - a separate wheel and deal foundation/organization.
CITGO -the gas company now owned by the people of Venezuela, not the rich people of Venezuela and the U.S./Europe friends as it was for decades - I use 'owned' as in owning the Venezuela rulers and striking deals for the benefits of corporations.

This accusation against Sequioa is going to be interesting. Maybe our government treasury department is also confused between the two. Or maybe they are conveniently playing with us on behalf of the right wing WH.

In any case, it looks like the ownership of Sequioa is so secretive that they won't break the case before the election. Also convenient.

What was being implied on MSNBC -IMUS this morning by Charles - is that the machines are crooked because they come from Venezuela and are a product of Chavez.

Here we go on the obfuscation trail - so many secrets - so many thefts and lies to cover up?

9. Yes....it's interesting. What if the Sequoia group is tied to anti-Chavez
Edited on Mon Oct-30-06 09:54 AM by KoKo01
interests? What if the Repugs start to scream because counties with the Smartmatic voting machines go Dem? Will the Repugs yell "Chavez did it!"
If Chavez did it then it opens up the can of worms about the other voting machines for the 2004 elections where Wally O'Dell of Diebold said "Ohio will go for Bush."

How would the media handle this? And, wouldn't it be clever if some "powers that be" are intentionally putting out this Meme of Chavez stealing the election to Lou Dobbs and others just to bring forward the whole issue of Touchscreen voting not being safe? It would be an odd turn around if there were some Dem Groups who were clever enough to do it. :shrug:

Either way, the "supposed Chavez connection" has Freepers upset and the whole issue is ready to explode when voting irregularities show up in this election...which we know is a given. They can't yell "Chavez Stole it for Dems," when Dems can go back to Ohio and Florida '04 and even farther back to Mid-terms in 02 and Stolen Election 2000 showing that machines owned by Bush Campaign Contributors influenced those elections for Repugs by either losing votes or switching votes.
