The current federal lawsuit in front of Justice Amy Totenberg, Curling, et al. v. Raffensperger, et al, has recently revealed some disturbing information about the way votes are tabulated in our elections by the Secretary of State’s office. Specifically, the 2018 midterm election. Evidence has been uncovered that for both the 2018 Primary and General Elections, ES&S was contracted to tabulate the votes. Said evidence can be viewed here - https://coaltionforgoodgovernance.sharefile.com/share/view/s33f6d198a8d46ab8?skipNativeCheck=true

ES&S is the vendor for our current 17+ year-old machines.  They are also the vendor for the new machines the Secretary of State’s office is planning to purchase to replace the old ones. The fact that ES&S is also tabulating actual election votes is highly outrageous. The people of Cobb County are responsible for vote tabulation and should do so in order to prevent fraud. Non-government workers comprised of equal numbers of Democrats and Republicans are the ones to be tabulating our votes in order to achieve complete transparency and maintain voter trust. The fact that this was not so in 2018 is shocking, possibly illegal and cannot continue in the future. 

The Cobb County Board of Elections are free, as all County Boards of Elections in the state of Georgia, to use hand-marked paper ballots if they see fit. In light of this scandalous revelation, all the Cobb County registered voters who have signed this petition respectfully request the Board to act by using hand-marked paper ballots for the 2019 Municipal Elections and all future elections until Curling v. Raffensberger is resolved to the last appeal, including the Supreme Court of the United States or until a binding settlement is reached.
