Producer’s note: This interview is part of the 2014 Don Gill Memorial Candidate Interview Series
Among the improvements DeRamel aims to effectuate in the Office of Secretary of State are increasing voter participation; modernization of the election process; and possibly acquiring new voting machines. He favors early voting and an improved Voter Handbook, which provides more information. He characterizes the Office as “a watchdog for the people” and a place that can make it easier for small business. To his credit he testified in favor of eliminating the master lever/master line voting; however, he does supports neither Voter ID nor having a Constitutional Convention.
