Dominion Voting Systems in Minnesota: Protect Election Integrity
Democracy depends on transparent and fair elections.
Recent election coverage indicates that Minnesota uses electronic voting systems which may be vulnerable to hacking and/or vote switching. Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic software in particular have been accused of vulnerabilities in both the US and Canada, and have been criticized by Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, Senator Elizabeth Warren, cybersecurity experts, academics, and government personnel.
Therefore, we the people of Minnesota urge our state legislature and the Secretary of State to take the following actions:
- Disclose the current approval process for electronic voting machines and software in Minnesota
- Disclose whether and where Dominion machines and Smartmatic software were used in the 2020 election
- Disclose whether all electronic voting machines were subject to continuous equal oversight by observers from all political parties
- Demonstrate that these machines are not vulnerable to hacking or vote manipulation
- Disclose how long Dominion machines and Smartmatic software have been used in Minnesota, for which elections, and where
- Disclose whether the purchase of Dominion or Smartmatic products was accompanied by kickbacks to any members of the Minnesota government or their families
- Disclose problems already reported with electronic voting systems in Minnesota
- Pending review, suspend the use of Dominion and Smartmatic products, and any other electronic voting products that are not open source and secure from hacking
- Pass legislation to guarantee that any future electronic voting systems will meet the following criteria:
- They will be open source and certifiably secure from hacking
- They will preserve a paper ballot trail
- The official results will be confirmed by a strictly audited hand count prior to the state certification of the vote, for each and every election in which the machines are used.
