Guest Blogged by John Gideon of VotersUnite.org In an article in OpEdNews Teresa Hommel calls voters to action and asks that HR-811 be amended to correct problems. She identifies a couple problems with the worst being: "In response to growing national demand for paper ballots, HR811 defines a "voter-verified paper trail" from an electronic voting machine as a paper ballot! But nobody counts the votes on the paper trail to get election results. No law requires the paper trail to be counted completely (for example, New York law requires only 3% spot-check). HR811 would cause endless problems and confusion with state election laws where the term "ballot" means a voter-marked paper ballot. The "thing" that would be defined as a ballot in federal law would not have to be counted, according to most state laws, to determine election results." That seems pretty clear and is just one more reason that HR-811 must be amended. ...
