Get rid of both Cronin and election board

I read that Dan Cronin is furious and ranting about getting rid of the entire DuPage Election Commission. I think that is a good first step. But the last paragraph of the article states that the Election Commission was appointed by … Dan Cronin. Really, Dan? You put these inept people in place to begin with.

Cronin just appoints his own flunkies. Cronin is really the one that needs to go.

The fiasco of the voting equipment, and the poor handling by the DuPage Election Commission, needs to be addressed.

The ender cards that close down the voting machines were too thick to be inserted into the machines. The Election Commission claims that everything was fully tested so why wasn't this caught?

My husband is an election judge in Naperville. When the polls closed, his location realized the card was too thick. They called the County Election Office and were on hold for 45 minutes. They were told to turn off the voting machine with the memory card left inside, to leave the machine there and the Election Commission would deal with it later. My husband asked again "are you sure you don't want the memory card?" and he was told no, just leave it in the machine.

When he gets to the county to drop off the voting supplies, he is told he needs to talk to the county lawyers because he didn't bring the memory card. He had to return to the polling place in Naperville. It was midnight before everything was finished, and these election judges had been working since 5 a.m.

So a big thank-you to all the election judges. And let's get rid of the inept Election Commission and the guy who appointed them.
