A county in Northern California has terminated its contract with Dominion Voting Systems, a company that's faced a barrage of election fraud conspiracy theories.
The controversial decision has now left the county without a way to conduct elections.
The county is Shasta County, which is small and rural and occupies the northernmost end of the Sacramento Valley. This deeply red part of a blue state has been embroiled in unproven claims of fraud since the 2020 election.
The county's Board of Supervisors has shifted more conservative in recent years, and the board's chair, Patrick Jones, led the charge to dump Dominion, which happened with a 3-2 vote by the supervisors in late January.
