PROVIDENCE, RI – In response to new ballot machine inaccuracies, Democratic candidate for governor Helena Buonanno Foulkes issued the following statement:
“This is a very serious issue. As the Chief Elections Officer for the State of Rhode Island, Secretary Nellie Gorbea is responsible for ensuring that elections are fair, fast, and accurate. The buck should stop with her.
It is also deeply troubling that Secretary Gorbea learned about this on Wednesday and the public was not notified until late Friday afternoon. This lack of transparency undermines our election system and disenfranchises voters from having trust in our democratic process.”
