and here is a list of experts that the U.S. Congress may consult with:
on questions and details concerning federal legislation to ensure the integrity of our democracy. This list of experts is not an exhaustive list, but is rather meant to be a managable size for Congress. The highly qualified experts on it know many other experts who can be conferred with.
For ordinary citizens to exercise oversight over election integrity and be empowered to detect vote miscount and voter disenfranchisement, it is vital that:
1. Sufficient, transparent, verifiable manual audits of machine vote counts are conducted, and
2. Election records and data are publicly released
prior to any election results being certified.
Please contact your US House Representative and Senators and urge them to implement these recommendations and to consult with independent experts prior to finalizing the wording of any legislation.
To have any possibility for having auditable voting system and sufficient manual audits of vote counts in place by the November 2008 election, federal legislation must be passed and funded in early 2007.
Please contact the staff of your representative and senators before the end of January.
Thank you very much!
