Editor’s note: Brian Christie, an IT professional, House candidate, and an Essex Junction City justice of the peace, on October 12 sent this letter to Will Senning, the Director of Elections for the Vermont Secretary of State’s Office. To date, Senning has not responded, Christie said. However, Secretary of State Jim Condos in an Essex Reporter news article dismissed similar statements by another Essex JP as “ludicrous.”
Election fraud will the topic of a talk tonight from 6-9 pm at Valley Bible Church in Middlebury by Dr. David Clements, Law Professor, New Mexico State University, former Deputy District Attorney, 12th Judicial District Attorney’s Office, former Senior Trial Attorney, 3rd and 6th Judicial District Attorney’s Office.
The midterm elections are fast approaching. As you may recall I am a member of the BCA in the newly formed entity of Essex Junction City. I was appointed as a JP during the summer. I recently attended the certification of the tabulators and observed an obvious vulnerability.
In light of the myriad of evidence and reports forthcoming, I have a number of questions and will organize my questions accordingly.
1. DHS-CIS has identified 9 vulnerabilities with Dominion Voting machines
“This is exactly what the DHS-CISA warning is about: that such “malicious code” and “malicious applications” could be installed on a machine without its operators’ awareness.”
What efforts is the Secretary of State’s office doing to patch these vulnerabilities?
What efforts has the Secretary of State’s office made to make all election officials aware of the vulnerabilities inherent to the dominion machines outlined in the DHS-CIS report?
2. Dominion machines in Georgia showing hand count discrepancies
What efforts is the Secretary of State’s office taking to ensure that the algorithms used inside the tabulators are consistently accurate? Will there be a forensic audit of the tabulators after the election to ensure that?
3. Konnech CEO Eugene Yu arrested for storing US election data on servers in China
How is the Secretary of State’s office ensuring that voter records of any kind are not being accessed and stored on foreign servers?
4. Alaska Borough votes to ban voting machines in future elections
Do the Vermont State Statutes require all municipalities, towns, etc. to use electronic tabulators?
What is the process of banning the use of electronic voting systems and returning to more reliable “old school” methods?
5. The new tabulators I saw at the town office have MAC addresses and ethernet ports. This indicates the presence of a modem. Devices can be hacked even if not connected to the internet.
In the age of quantum computing and handheld computing devices, how is the Secretary of State’s office directing counties and townships to handle this known vulnerability?
6. The Electronic Registration Information Center (ERIC) violates federal law.
How is the Secretary of State’s office preventing real-time access to Vermont voter roles by domestic and foreign entities?
How is the Secretary of State’s office ensuring the public that everyone in the Vermont voter role meets all of the requirements set by Vermont Statutes?
How is the Secretary of State’s office preventing identity theft with mail in ballots based upon a dirty voter role? (i.e. many ballots sent to the same address)
How is the Secretary of State’s office preventing non-citizens from registering to vote if they can get a driver’s license?
As you can see, there are many vulnerabilities in the current election system that need to be addressed.
I am looking forward to your responses.
Together we can make the election system better.
