Mary Cheh Subpoenas Elections Board, Vendor

by Mike DeBonis

Dec. 1, 2008

Ward 3 Council-member Mary Cheh today announced shell be digging deep into her legislative toolbox to pry out information on this years electoral fiascoes.

For one, Cheh announced at a council press conference this morning, she will be asking her council colleagues at the legislative meeting tomorrow to pass a resolution to enforce subpoenas on Sequoia Voting Systems, the manufacturer of the Districts voting machines. Cheh, who is heading a special committee investigating this years elections, had sought source code for Sequoias software and other records in September in order to vet allegations of voting irregularities during the Sept. 9 primary. Sequoia has thus far refused to comply; the resolution would allow the council to ask a judge to force compliance.

"And an audit of four random precincts yesterday was troubling to voting advocates when the numbers still didn't add up."
