What Will You Do?

Congress & State Officials have failed in their responsibility to properly secure our election system.

Unfortunately, our voting systems are vulnerable to hacking and contain secret coding. Additionally, voter suppression & gerrymandering is out of control. Our leadership has failed to work towards a real solution to the problem and time is running out. This is why I’m stepping up to the plate.

But I can’t do this alone. I need your help to win. We are all in this fight together and it’s time to protect our most fundamental right  — the right to vote in free & fair elections.

Our Plan

1. Protect and upgrade our election process. We must transition the state from ” secret software ” insecure election systems to more secure public software / paper ballot systems. This will save the taxpayers billions of dollars while heightening security and increasing voter confidence / participation. We must upgrade our systems from registration to audit and correct current plans to close down precincts or reduce audit capabilities. We must strive to restore California’s position as a leader in the election process community.

2. Streamline the business filing process. We must maximize technology and create a better, more transparent business environment for California As a small business owner / entrepreneur, I will fight for California businesses.

3. Make government more transparent. As your Secretary of State, I will work to ensure that we have the most transparent process possible. We will work to make donor information more obvious on the ballot literature as well as the Secretary of State’s website. We work for the people.


Instead of stopping vulnerable and secret election software from continuing to invade our democracy, California is planning to spend millions of dollars so that the same vendors can sell us MORE insecure election systems I will make California the leader in saying “No!” to dangerous black box voting systems.
