It is time to ensure FITness – Faith & Integrity & Trust in our elections.  We are asking all of you to attend the BOARD OF REGISTRATION AND ELECTIONS SPECIAL CALLED MEETING regarding the future of Konnech’s PollChief® Election Management System in DeKalb County, Georgia.  On September 8, 2022, The DeKalb DeKalb County Department of Registration and Elections entered into a formal agreement This meeting follows my formal requests for the DeKalb County Registration and Elections Office to terminate its’ agreement following the arrest of Eugene Yu, CEO of Konnech by Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón on October 4, 2022 for allegedly storing the data of Los Angeles County elections workers in China in violation of its contract with the county.  On October 5, 2022, Ingham County Prosecutors Office Unit Chief Nicole Matusko declared Mr. Yu a significant flight risk after being discovered with luggage but without his cell phone on his way to the airport.  Following Mr. Yu’s arrest several customers have terminated their contracts with Konnech citing similar concerns to include Fairfax County, Virginia and Detroit, Michigan. The future viability of Konnech comes into play as it is expected that several other customers will follow suit. It is our hope that DeKalb County adds its’ name to the terminated client list and focus its’ efforts on the Midterm Elections.  Thank you.

With Best Regards,

Marci McCarthy, Chairman
DeKalb Republican Party
