Just why is the New Jersey State Commission of Investigation (SCI) asking counties for all paperwork that applies to their dealing with Sequoia Voting Systems? They want “all bids, contracts, licenses, canceled checks and warranties relating to the purchase of voting machines from Sequoia.” Of course no one at SCI is saying anything while the investigation is under way.

And in more vendor news St Joseph Co, Indiana is paying an ES&S bill under protest and they may follow their check with a notice of a lawsuit. It seems the company may have made software updates contrary to county instructions and then when ES&S corrected the mistake they decided to charge for that correction.
