Sequoia Voting Systems scares NJ county off of auditing its machines — so much for fair elections in Union County

Union County has backed off a plan to let a Princeton University computer scientist examine voting machines where errors occurred in the presidential primary tallies, after the manufacturer of the machines threatened to sue, officials said today…

On the advice of county's attorneys, however, Rajoppi said today she must forego all plans for independent analysis.
