ON THE ISSUES

Holding County Election Officials Accountable

I will not sacrifice the transparency, integrity and security of our elections and election system in the name of partnership and collaboration. By holding county election officials, whether it is the board of supervisors or the county recorder, accountable to state laws and the rules of the Elections Procedures Manual, legally required to be developed in consultation with them, I will rebuild the public’s and voter’s confidence in our results. I will do this through rules that will achieve and maintain the maximum degree of correctness, impartiality, uniformity and efficiency on the procedures for early voting and voting, and of producing, distributing, collecting, counting, tabulating and storing ballots.
