MN Secretary of State Visits Brooklyn Park During Voting Accuracy Test
Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon visited Brooklyn Park Wednesday when election officials tested voter machines.
“My hope is knowing that this is a thing, knowing that this exists is on some level soothing to people who have questions or even doubts,” said Simon. “They know this is open to the public. Anyone anyone can take a glimpse, anyone can look over the shoulder as Mr. Montero and others like him ‘kick the tires’ of the election equipment.”
Simon visited as election officials tested the machines from different wards at the city’s water treatment plant on Wednesday morning.
The secretary of state visits different locations around the state to bring attention to public accuracy testing. He visited Brooklyn Park before. On Wednesday, the testing at Brooklyn Park was only attended by press and a few citizens, but people questioning the validity of the election process have showed up at locations around the state.
Election Day is Nov. 8.
