Greg Abbott Questions Dominion Voting Systems’ Actions and Future in Texas

Texas Governor Greg Abbott expresses concern over Dominion Voting Systems in response to reports suggesting the company demanded Tucker Carlson’s firing as part of a settlement. Abbott emphasizes the importance of not silencing opposing views and states that if Dominion wishes to do business in Texas, they must address their role, if any, in suppressing a conservative journalist. The governor believes that the answers to these questions, along with other considerations, should determine whether Dominion should be allowed to operate in the state.

Shasta County Board of Supervisors Votes to Terminate Contract with Dominion Voting Systems, Prioritizing Voter Trust

The Shasta County Board of Supervisors has voted 3-2 to terminate the contract with Dominion Voting Systems after the upcoming special election in the city of Shasta Lake. The decision was based on the importance of voter trust, with the majority emphasizing that it is invaluable. The termination will lead to the implementation of a new electronic voting system, which is estimated to cost at least $1 million for procurement and training. The process of finding a new vendor will be governed by the Shasta County Code and involve the discretion of the Board of Supervisors and the County Clerk/Registrar of Voters, as well as competitive procurement processes. While the RFQ/RFP process for a new system can be lengthy, the limited choice of state-approved vendors in California, including Hart InterCivic and Election Systems and Software (ES&S), may expedite the process.
