RESPONSE TO FALSE ALLEGATIONS

 

It has come to the attention of the Sacramento County Department of Voter Registration and Elections that there are rumors circulating nationally and even internationally, that there are two employees of the Dominion technology company that are employed in our Registrar's office.

These rumors are false. The genesis of these rumors is still unclear, but due to the prevalence of this rumor, our office is addressing this lie head-on:

​​​•​

No Dominion employees have ever been or ever will be employed by the Sacramento County Voter Registration & Elections Department​
​​

​​
Our Lead Support Technician from Dominion was on-site the first day of Logic & Accuracy testing (Monday, 8/9) and will be back next Monday (8/16) for the first day of Logic & Accuracy testing on the tabulation system
​​
The purpose of the limited on-site technician support is to provide subject matter expertise in the maintenance and/or repair of the voting equipment should any equipment fail during the Logic & Accuracy testing. On-site presence can expedite the RMA (Return Material Authorization) process to replace equipment in the event of failure
​​
Maintenance and/or repair processes are performed by Sacramento County Voter Registration & Elections staff. The vendor may only provide expertise and advice on how to best achieve the maintenance and/or repair of voting equipment


​​•​​
On-site vendor support is required to be scheduled in advance, the vendor personnel must wear an identification badge and be escorted by Sacramento County Voter Registration & Elections Department staff at all times while on the premises. They are not allowed to touch voting equipment, election files, or ballots at any time
