In an interview with local TV station KZSW-TV – Temecula, the reporter stated that Riverside County Registrar of Voters Barbara Dunmore told the station “she’s under no obligation at this time to maintain the integrity of those soon-to-be-obsolete [voting] machines.”
The full two-minute transcript with photos of unsecured machines and of one machine delivered without a voting cartridge to record votes on is attached.

Not taking security of the machines seriously has always been a charge made by SAVE R VOTE of the ROV, but actually seeing and hearing it admitted on a television interview is absolutely astounding.
When will the Board of Supervisors come to the realization that this ROV does not value election integrity (as stated in the newscast) – at least not as it relates to the 3,700 voting machines the county has spent over $35 million on over the past 7 years?
What more needs to be said? How much longer will this be tolerated?
SAVE R VOTE
The degree of willingness of a government to open itself up to public scrutiny and public audit foretells the quality and integrity of that government.
