Recognized for his expertise in voter education and voting technologies, he’s testified before both chambers of Congress, and before other federal and state panels. An innovator, Supervisor Sancho introduced early voting to Florida in 1994, as well as pioneering Florida’s first integrated windows voter registration database. Mr. Sancho was appointed the technical advisor to the 2000 Florida recount by the Florida Supreme Court.

Conducting independent tests in 2005 he uncovered a major security flaw in the Diebold Accu-vote 2000 voting machine (captured in the 2007 Emmy nominated documentary “Hacking Democracy”), leading to its decertification in several states. The Election Center awarded the Freedom Award to his office in 2008 for creating an intelligent bar code tracking system for vote by mail ballots. Retiring in 2016, Mr. Sancho was featured in the HBO 2020 documentary on voting machine security “Killchain: The Cyber War on American Elections.He currently serves on the Board for the non-partisan Electronic Verification Network and continues his efforts promoting accessible and secure elections.
