Ohio Supreme Court takes case over voting machine purchase
The Ohio Supreme Court will hear a case concerning Stark County’s continued purchase of voting machines from Dominion Voting Systems. The northeastern county’s bipartisan elections board has been frustrated in its attempts to purchase new machines from its traditional vendor, due to unsubstantiated accusations that Dominion machines were used to steal votes in the 2020 election. The Republican-led board of commissioners for the same county is insisting that the board of electors provide additional information before moving forward with the purchase, such as details on alternative bids from other voting system vendors.
