11/1/15 Beth Clarkson newsletter plea for verifiable voting

Beth's request from the newsletter:

"I need your help for a letter writing campaign.

A RFP (request for proposal) for a new voting system for Sedgwick, Shawnee, Johnson and Wyandotte counties was issued in October.

I have some major concerns with it about the lack of crucial requirements for transparency in vote counting. I've enumerated them in this post http://showmethevotes.org/2015/11/01/minimum-requirements-for-a-new-voting-system/ at showmethevotes.org along with my arguments for why these requirements are necessary.

If you agree that we need a system that will guarantee our votes are counted accurately with verifiable transparency, then please write:

Sandra Gritz
Chief Deputy Election Commissioner,
Sedgwick County Election Office
525 N. Main, #101
Wichita, KS 67203

email: [email protected]

Please let her know you support me in wanting those minimum requirements included in our new voting system. She has promised to forward our concerns to the committee that will be deciding on the new voting system.

Thanks

Beth Clarkson

Minimum Requirements for a New Voting System

REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL (RFP) #15-0078 VOTING SYSTEM

A RFP (request for proposal) for a new voting system for Sedgwick, Shawnee, Johnson and Wyandotte counties was issued last month.

Here are the three big requirements for a transparent voting process:
1 Voter Marked Paper Ballots; DRE machines , such as our current ones, are unacceptable.
2 Open Source software; Proprietary software is unacceptable.
3 Post election audits conducted to verify results.

None of these requirements are mentioned in the RFP. Personally, I consider this a major problem.
