    Put all that money into securing our local elections. Jim Condos is a nice guy that has seen his time pass. our elections have no accountability otherwise we couldn’t have voted twice. Voting machines should not have WIFI capability. Voting machines should not have signature verification with variable threshold verification settings. Voting machines should count in whole numbers and not have the option in software code to use integers. Thats what we have now. Condos is incompetent for not recognizing how flawed these machine’s software has become.
