One bill -- H.R. 550 -- could be the most important bill your Representative co-sponsors this year.

The "Voter Confidence and Increased Accessibility Act" (H.R.550) is the "gold standard" of voter verifiability legislation, requiring not only voter-verified paper records but also mandatory manual audits to confirm that voting machines are working properly.

You can help: please make sure your Representative co-sponsors H.R. 550 immediately.
