Dear Dr. Taitz,
I am in receipt of your letter dated June 11, 2012. We received it in Santa Cruz County on Monday, June 18, 2012.
In your letter you request to view our 1% manual tally. We posted on May 31, 2012 that our manual tally drawing would take place on June 7, 2012 at 10 a.m. and the manual tally would begin immediately after that. As of today, June 18, 2012, we have completedour manual tally.
We are still working on the following canvass procedures:
1. Researching approximately 2000 provisional ballots and preparing eligible votes for the count
2. Finalizing the seal audit and post Logic and Accuracy audits of the touch screen units and scanners
3. Auditing all materials from the polls
You are welcome at any time to come and view any of our procedures.
We are required to certify election results by July 3, and we anticipate being done before that date.
Should you have any questions, please call or email me. Thank you.
