The Miami-Dade Republican Executive Committee Election Integrity Subcommittee has requested certain election machine reports they feel are needed to prove elections in the jurisdiction are run in a free and fair manner.
Miami-Dade Elections refused to provide the information, saying it was 'secret'.
These are simply update logs for the machines so Florida residents can assure their vote was cast and recorded properly. These reports have nothing to do with 'proprietary software'.
In addition, the information is part of an audit trail needed to verify an individuals vote was recorded correctly, and therefore required specifically under the Florida Constitution.
The refusal comes on the heels of the receipt of other reports through open records requests which proved massive machine election fraud throughout Florida via the use of the 'blank ballot' scheme, resulting in large numbers of ballots being designated as 'blank' and adjudicated by machine software.
Why would Miami-Dade Elections refuse to provide the information?
Readers can decide for themselves.
