Cheh Presses Sequoia on Voting Machines

Election software is a big part of the problem in the city's seemingly inability to properly count votes accurately and efficiently, according to Councilmember Mary M. Cheh, chairperson of the special council committee investigating the issue.

After the Nov. 4th general election, Cheh said she's determined that there are irregularities that suggest systemic problems in the software. She's now pressing the company that supplies the equipment to comply with a previously issued subpoena.

Cheh wants the company, Sequoia Voting Stystems, to turn over the source code for the software, and plans to take up the issue in tomorrow's 10 a.m. hearing on voting problems in the John A. Wilson Building.

Some issues found on Nov. 4th were minor, Cheh said, but she believes they could lead to solving the systematic issues.
