On February 27th, Cathy Darling Allen, the Shasta County Clerk and Registrar of Voters hosted an Open House event at the Shasta County Veteran’s Hall in downtown Redding. A town hall will soon be held to discuss the current contract with the county's voting machines.

During the Open house, representatives from the two other certified vendors, ES&S and Hart, presented equipment so the public could see, touch and ask questions of the vendor staff who will be attending.

Last month, on January 24th, the Shasta County Board of Supervisors voted 3-2 to cancel the county’s current contract with Dominion Voting Systems. Currently, only three vendors provide certified voting equipment to counties in California.

The Elections Department says the goal of the open house is to better inform the public of the responsibilities and duties of the county’s election administration staff, and the impact on voters that this change creates with an upcoming presidential election in mind. The public is invited to take a tour of the office, meet the election staff who conduct local elections, and understand the options they have for voting technology that can replace the current Dominion equipment.

On February 28th, the Shasta County Elections Department will present three items to the board. The first item will present the two vendor quotes and options for the Board to make going forward so that every Shasta County voter will be able to cast a legal and valid vote for president in 2024. The Board meeting will be held at 9 a.m. in the County Administrative Center at 1450 Court Street.

Voters who want to cast a vote for president during the next cycle and have concerns about this Board item and action are encouraged and make their voices heard.

Additionally, the Elections Department is conducting a survey on trust in elections both in Shasta County, and generally. The survey can be found here.
