Special Master John Shadegg's report confirms what our election professionals have said for months: the 2020 General Election was secure and the County's election system works.
Three independent technology experts, including one recommended by the Senate, concluded the county's ballot tabulation system was not connected to the internet. The report states "the special master and expert panel found no evidence of data deletion, data purging, data overwriting, or other destruction of evidence or obstruction of the audit." The investigation also debunks the idea that the county’s routers were connected to the election tabulation system.
In short, the unanimous conclusions of this expert panel should be a final stake in the heart of the Senate's so-called 'audit.'
Whenever impartial, independent, and competent people have examined the County's election practices, they have found no reason to doubt the integrity of those practices. The Board of Supervisors remains committed to free and fair elections that conform to federal and state laws.
