Ion Sancho is a name well-known in the world of elections, and election security. He recently retired after spending 28 years as the Supervisor of Elections in Leon County, that’s the county that includes the state capitol Tallahassee. During the 2000 presidential recount, Sancho was chosen to lead the Florida hand count in Miami-Dade County, which the U.S. Supreme Court stopped just as it began.
