A friend recently sent me a link to this site and I finally have had a chance to read some of the material here. Let me first say that I'm extremely concerned about some of what I'm reading and secondly I'm extremely appreciative of the work that you do here.

Now, if I understand you last two posts correctly, it would seem that the Ohio SoS scheduled a Board of Examiners meeting to discuss the merits of the Hart voting system. What I don't understand is why would something as crucial as this be scheduled 1-week after Cuyahoga ended its bidding process, choosing ESS over Hart? I mean, wouldn't one want to make sure that the voting examiners met on all voting systems prior to the completion of the bidding process?

Seems that either that I don't understand something, or this is gross negligence, or someone is covering their tracks.

I look forward to your follow-ups here.
