Check out 'Holt Election Reform Bill Continues to be Supported by Democrats and Their Public Advocacy Groups, While Being Criticized by the Election Integrity Community' at:
If you spend twenty minutes tops and follow the links, I guarantee that you will find yourself very well informed. Then, you can make up your own mind and go out and make some noise for true election reform.
Is any legislation better than no legislation? It depends on the legislation. In this case, we think not.
It's extremely important for us (this group of election integrity advocates who
are for amending HR 811) to understand exactly what helps to simplify and explain this very complex subject of crucial importance to all for the health of our elections. I think almost everyone now recognizes the dangers of a HAVA, part 2, debacle. Our nation simply can't afford it.
Any input you can give us can help us hone our message to effectively reach our fellow American voters before it's too late. This legislation is being fast-tracked. Time is not on our side.
Let's all give this our best effort so that afterwards, we aren't beating ourselves up about all the things we didn't do to make it happen. Any decisions made and legislation passed now will affect the next few elections at the very least and the direction this country will take.
Are you prepared to let this important decision be made without your input or consent? Remember government "of the people, by the people, for the people"? Democracy demands eternal vigilance and vigorous citizen participation. Without it, we are merely living in a nation impersonating a democracy. Will you settle for that?
If democracy is important enough that we will fight for it in far flung lands, isn't it worth a fight here at home?
