Primary for instance that it was by no means allowed to bid within the 2010 elections as a result of it didn’t truly personal the software program. Dominion owned the software program. Dominion Voting owned the software program. Plus the problem that they needed to put the COMELEC (Fee on Elections) with the intention to entry the supply code. Points like that. Your ideas? Folks say we shouldn’t be subjected to Smartmatic once more this time round.
