Illegal Voting Machines Used In Busby-Bilbray Race Requires Immediate Hand Count To Verify Results.

It has come to my attention that the Busby-Bilbray special election in CA-50 on June 6th was conducted on Diebold voting machines, many if not all of which were left unsecured in the homes, cars and offices of poll workers in the weeks prior to the election. Diebold touchscreen and optical scan machines have been proven by California's own Secretary of State to be unreliable in the field and vulnerable to hacking in unsecure environments. Because improper procedures were used in this election, no one has proof that these machines were not subject to memory card switches or other easy tampering techniques such as manipulating the counters. Americans deserve to know their elections are counted accurately. No matter the results.

I do not have confidence in the announced outcome of the Busby-Bilbray election because of the use of Diebold machines and the fact that the chain of custody of the machines was broken and compromised by the failure of to maintain the machines in a secure environment.
In at least two other elections on June 6th in Pottawattamie County Iowa, optical scan machines showed the popular incumbents had lost the race in Republican Primaries until a hand count of the paper ballots showed otherwise. The incumbent had actually won in both cases, but had the election director not noticed something amiss and decided to hand count the ballots, they would never have known they'd actually won.

I am hereby demanding that all of the paper ballots from the Diebold optical scan machines and the paper trails from the DRE machines and any other absentee and early voting ballots be hand counted, with proper oversight, and that the chain of custody for those paper ballots and paper trails be verifiably secured immediately! I ask that the results of the election not be certified until this hand count is completed.

Voters must have confidence in the outcome of elections or else the security of our elections and our democracy will be undermined. This election belongs to the voters in CA-50, and people all across the nation have an interest in its outcome. Neither candidate has the right to concede this election when Diebold vote machines were used in a manner that fails to comply with normal security procedures.
