FairVote Signs Voting Equipment Letter Groups and Election Officials Warn DOJ Against Allowing Merger

Last week, FairVote signed onto a letter to the Department of Justice advising against allowing the largest voting equipment vendor, ES&S, from buying its next largest competitor, Diebold's Premier Elections Solutions, Inc. FairVote has been a long-time supporter of transparency and accountability in the voting equipment industry and believes that states and municipalities should have a "public option" for purchasing equipment. FairVote allies Common Cause and the Advancement Project were among the signatories to the letter.
