Mickey Duniho testified in yesterday's election integrity hearing held in Tucson, Arizona. Duniho is one of thirteen plaintiffs suing Pima County to get them to comply with existing election laws. He provides an excellent summary of the problems verifying elections counted on electronic voting machines.
Pima County is notorious for fighting measures for election integrity and have spent millions of taxpayer's dollars to prevent disclosure of public election records.
The aim of the lawsuit against Pima County is to get the court to:
1. Issue an injunction requiring the Defendants to instruct poll workers to include, in every Official Return Envelope, a copy of the signed “tally lists” or results tape as required by A.R.S. §16-615.
2. Issue an injunction mandating that the Defendants separate the vote by mail ballots by precinct.
3. Issue and injunction ordering Pima County to conduct sufficient randomly selected hand count audits of the vote by mail ballots, according to the procedure outlined in A.R.S. 16-602. County races must be included in the audit.
This suit also requests the recovery of legal fees incurred.
A ruling on this case is expected today.
