Davis And Cobb



Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jim Davis calls on Secretary of State Sue Cobb to reject a proposed new rule requiring elections supervisors to notify state election authorities and voting machine companies before testing voting machines.

“The new rule offered by Florida’s secretary of state will make it harder for local supervisors of elections to test the integrity and accuracy of voting equipment,” said Davis. “We should be making it easier for supervisors of elections to conduct free and fair elections, not making harder to independently test voting machines in advance of Election Day.”
