Press Release: 3-19-12BREAKING NEWS: PROOF COOK COUNTY ELECTIONS ARE BEING CONDUCTED UNLAWFULLY!
This past weekend, in preparation for the audit of Cook County, I came across informationthat confirms Cook County elections are being not being conducted according to Illinois law.
I am filing the following complaint with the Illinois Attorney General’s Office,
with the Cook County Board of Elections, with the Illinois State Board of Elections and with the Cook
County State’s Attorney
and the Court:As soon as I post this, I will be headed downtown to Cook County Court. I have no clue what will
occur… But I will be in Chicago.
The purpose is to protect the election tomorrow; to cause for Cook County to become complaint withIllinois election law.There is time for a few changes.Cook County Elections communicate with election judges during a6:30am contact. SOME of these vulnerabilities can be corrected.I am sorry, this post is a bit rough in format, but timing is short
CANDIDATES: Use the audit forms, you MAY have grounds for a re-vote.
Cook County procedures instructs equipment managers to seal the ballot box the night beforethe elections. These ballot boxes are unlocked and unattended over night in the polling place.There is no procedure to confirm the seals have not been tampered with before or after closing thepolls.There is no procedure to permit breaking of the ballot box seals to permit pollwatchers and judges onElection Day to examine and verify the ballot boxes as empty.No procedure in place directs Election Judges to view the ballot box collectively (or in front of apollwatcher) before opening the polls in the morning.The night before the election, 3 seals numbers are recorded from 3 types of ballot boxes: write-in bluebag seal, regular ballot box, and the alternative ballot box. Two judges (1 per party) sign the
“Record of Seals” form
, indicating the seal numbers.
This is done the night before voting and is not done in publicas required.
