Op-ed: There are ‘concerns’ with DuPage County’s planned voting system purchase
There are many concerns with the DuPage County planned purchase of a new voting system. On Sept. 14, the DuPage Finance Committee and the DuPage Board meet to approve over $10.5 million on a new voting system.
The DuPage County Request for Purchase (RFP) out lined some very specific requirements. One requirement was that the proposed system be U.S. Election Assistance Committee (EAC) certified. The current list of certified voting systems list on the EAC web site does not show that the Hart InterCivic Verity 3.1 voting system, which DuPage County is planning to purchase, has been approved for use by the EAC.
