THIS REQUIRES YOUR URGENT AND IMPORTANT ATTENTION! SB1557 seeks to rectify numerous and intuitively obvious election integrity issues in Arizona. To seek to modify or change this bill in any way is outrageous and should cause extreme suspicion of those who would seek to marginalize the accuracy and honesty of our votes. The bill would provide for mandatory verification of electronic voting machines by precinct at the time of an election, provide for a durable voter verified paper trail, enough polling places to avoid long lines on election day, and comply with federal government HAVA standards. Why would anyone want to "modify" simply assuring truth, honesty, and accuracy in our elections?
Please call, fax, email, send telegrams (oop, can't do that anymore) or hand deliver your demand that SB1557 be heard in committee as written with no modifications.
