The County Attorney has filed an apparently unauthorized notice of appeal, presumably purely on the word of County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry, or on the initiative of the County Attorney's office itself.

Only the Board of Supervisors has the authority to decide whether to appeal the court's ruling, and they haven't yet met to make any decision on the matter.

Tuesday morning we will present affidavits and letters from renowned computer scientists and election integrity activists stating that releasing these databases cannot harm national security as Chuck Huckelberry and his lawyers claim.

Election Trial item early on agenda
Please arrive by 9:00 a.m.

There are some 800 databases going back to May of 1998. Making them public could prove our votes were NOT counted inaccurately. If there is no problem, what is Pima County afraid of? Could these databases and audit logs prove the County committed election fraud?

The Democrats have also taken issue with several of Judge Miller's findings of fact as not supported by the testimony, and some of his conclusions of law as erroneous. See Democrats Motion to Amend for more details.

Bill Risner make a powerful case that Judge Miller would be hard-pressed to ignore that the Judge quite simply got several points wrong in his under-advisement opinion.

Discussion of the lawsuit will be one of the very first items on the agenda, so try to at the Board's Chambers by 9 am.

Contact the Supervisors and let them know this is a critical issue for you. Sources near the case indicate the Board will probably vote to appeal unless Ann Day decides to vote with Ray Carroll. She should be the target of heaviest lobbying. Ray Carroll is already in support of election integrity; call and thank him for his leadership.
