Cheh Moves a Step Closer on Subpoena for Sequoia Voting Systems

The inauguration of President-elect Barack Obama may be around the corner and the District of Columbia's Board of Elections and Ethics may have certified the Nov. 4th vote, but the business of the District's election problems are far from over.

And when we say election problems, we're not even talking about the fact that the District's GOP has gone to court over the certification of Michael Brown, who successfully ran for an at-large seat. The GOP aruges that Brown is a Democrat rather than the independent he said he was during the election.

Councilmember Mary M. Cheh (Ward 3), chair of the Council Board of Elections and Ethics Investigation Special Committee, is still hot on the trail of the city's most basic election problems: the voting process and counting the results.

Cheh upped the ante regarding Sequoia Voting Systems, the company that supplies the city's voting equipment, and now the company that Cheh is preparing to subpoena.

She is holding a markup of the "Enforcement of Subpoena of Sequoia Voting Systems Resolution of 2008" at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday in the John A. Wilson Building, room 120.

Cheh wants Sequoia to produce design documents, source code, and testing reports for the Special Committee. The company, however, has not been forthcoming.
