This is unacceptable.‣ A large number of canisters (approximately 50) were not sealed, orwere sealed improperly. It’s extremely important to seal thesecanisters to have them secured in case of a recount.‣ Many “Zero” reports, which are generated on each TSX unit beforestarting the voting process, were not signed by the Poll Workers.Happy Holidays toyou and yourfamilies from theBoard of ElectionsStaff and BoardMembers‣ Some Closing reports, which are run at the end of voting, were not signed bythe Poll Workers.‣ A couple of precincts did not even print the Closing reports.‣ 58 of the leg hinges were bent and/or damaged upon return.
