Mr Di Lullo,

 

I have contacted you in the past over the interesting voting techniques Cambridge has adopted for use during our Municipal Elections..

 

I asked you several months ago, how do you scrutinize such voting methods (?) and to date you have not answered me..

I am once again asking the same question..

 

I am also including some links here, clearly showing how questionable Electronic Voting really is..

 

My new question to you is this.. Why would you put the Voting Public at Risk by using these questionable methods of casting our ballot?.

 

Wouldn’t you agree, that it’s your job to make this process as transparent and fair as possible?

    Please show up at Council on April 18th at 7 PM

    TO LET THEM KNOW, you want.. PAPER / HAND COUNTED BALLOTS

    ALSO TO REQUEST, THEY STOP CLOSING VOTING/ and POLLING LOCATIONS…

    TO LET THEM KNOW… INTERNET, TELEPHONE AND TABULATOR VOTING.. is just too risky!

    Per CITY HALL Website…ONLY 20% OF CAMBRIDGE ACTUALLY USED IT….

    SO A PAPER BALLOT/ HAND COUNTED is the only way we must vote in the 2018 Election..

    IT’S THE ONLY METHOD THE FEDS AND THE PROVINCE TRUST DURING THEIR ELECTIONS..

    {If it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for us}..

    FYI.. our other option would have been “Ranked Ballot”, but they quickly opted to vote down that option last fall.. {?}

    Gary Dyke is not liked in this city. If I see him shopping anywhere I will say hello. We should blow up the Dam in Preston and let the river drain. This paper ballot is the way to go.

    Sometimes the OLD way is better than the NEW way…In the case of VOTING…OLD is always better. Paper Ballots, Hand Counting…no chance of things being ‘hacked’ or ‘deleted’.
    The outcome of Paper and Hand Counting may take a bit longer BUT ITS THE ONLY WAY TO GO

    PLEASE EVERYONE….TELL YOU COUNCILLOR YOU WANT PAPER BALLOTS AND HAND COUNTING IN 2018

    Sometimes I have heard that complete boxes of Ballots have gone missing and would be found in some person’s basement..

    It seems that there is no validation to the votes which makes it very precarious. If boxes of ballots can go missing, where is the “coding” on these boxes.

    Each ballot box should be well accounted for. There needs to be coding on each box that is marked on distribution and that has to be marked off on return prior to be opened up and counted. The counting needs to be done publicly or well supervised or taped.

    It seems that trust has disappeared with these issues that have come up…or the things that have been missing. And there needs to be a minimum of 2 initials on each ballot box that is verified at the time of the count to ensure that some ballot boxes do not somehow get replaced with ballots full of “selected” names.

    I have heard those rumours in the past as well..
    But.. we must be clear here.. it’s only rumours..
    NO PROOF EXISTS TO BACK THESE CLAIMS..

    JK April 12, 2017 at 1:35 am

    Who uses their own letters to a paper as proof that an issue needs to be addressed? No proof (besides your opinion over and over again) that electronic ballots are a problem, but you call other peoples reports of missing ballot boxes nothing but a rumour? Huh?

  8. Debbie Duff Vitez April 14, 2017 at 9:26 am

    Hi JK

    I wondered when supporters of this regime would start commenting again..

    We all have opinions, some more true than others..

    Was there a report of missing ballot boxes? When – where? I would like a copy of that report. Would be interesting.
    But there definitely are reports of Online/phone/electronic votes being hacked. So that is a definite.
    Yes I did hear a rumour of missing ballot boxes & those that took a while to get to destination. So would be interested in proof of this if you have it JK.
    Otherwise show up at the meeting April 18th at 7 p.m. at Council chambers – we need paper ballots – hand counted & scruteneered

    At a Cambridge Council meeting a speaker had different voting numbers than Diluloo and she asked for proof of his numbers. RK has sent 2 emails to Dilullo and he has not proved his numbers. R.K. numbers are from election results. So why has he not proven his numbers??? hmmmm – maybe he can’t – this is what I think. Therefore proving that online/telephone voting is hacked. So who did these extra votes go to that he can’t find and did someone win that should not have.
    Very interesting!!
    More to come – RK is waiting for an answer and so are the rest of us??
