As we were expecting today’s news is dominated with news from Ohio and the results of Secretary of State Brunner’s review of voting systems used in that state. There are also reports from Cuyahoga Co. regarding the push by Brunner for that county to immediately change over to ES&S central-count optical scan machines and voting centers to replace the county’s polling places. In light of the fact that the state’s primary election is March 4 and state law requires early voting to begin 35 days prior to March 4 Brunner is asking the county to completely change voting systems and vendors and to train voters and poll workers in less than three months and to have ballots printed by ES&S five weeks from now. This is very unwise. As bad as elections have been in Cuyahoga Co this push from the Secretary will only make things worse. We urge the county to conduct the primary on what they have now then change during the 7 months between the primary and the general election....
