This complaint was before the Illinois State Board of Elections earlier this week, on Tuesday, October 21st. The next step is we go into a process referred to as “alternative dispute resolution.” Within a couple of weeks, the complaint will move forward.
To understand how HAVA complaints are processed in Illinois, you can read about the process on the JCAR website.
This is meant to be a very brief update to link the public to our filings.
The next step in the process is an independent organization must be selected to review Meroni’s complaint. Two were filed. Both Meroni and the ISBE will select this arbitrator.
The complaint from August alleges with documentation that the Dominion/Sequoia EdgePlus2 and the 500c machines in use in Chicago and Suburban Cook County NEVER passed federal error-rate accuracy tests and that the manufacturer (Dominion) pulled the machines from production and from testing when it repeatedly failed the error testing mandated standards.
We wrote about this earlier in the year. A listing of related articles can be found in this search of our website.
We are a small group and deeply involved with fighting these machines. We were recently granted our 501c-3 status and we need funds to help pay for a lawyer to take these complaints to the next level.
