Guest Blogged by John Gideon of Voters of the United States have certain rights as American citizens. Among those rights is the right to vote for people who represent us in the local, state or federal government and to have our vote counted as we cast it. We also have the right to have our vote cast in secret. Presently our rights are in danger due to HAVA and its promoting the use of Direct Recording Electronic (DRE) voting machines which are not accurate and may not maintain the secrecy of our vote. HR-811 does nothing to safeguard our rights, in fact it helps to remove those rights by allowing the further use of DRE voting machines. Some in the Election Integrity community speak about compromises that would allow the continued use of DREs but with some restrictions. Any compromise of a right is a violation of that right. (With a tip of the hat to Paul Lehto)...
