In the next two weeks there will be a final push to get H.R. 550, a bill
introduced by Rep. Holt of New Jersey, on the House floor. H.R. 550 would
protect the integrity of our elections by requiring a voter verified paper
record of every vote, requiring mandatory random hand counted audits to verify
the accuracy of electronic tallies, which is the only way to ever conduct an
audit we can trust. It will also prohibit the use of secret software and
wireless communication devices in voting machines.
The recent change in leadership of the Committee on House Administration has
created a new opportunity for passage of this vital election integrity measure.
Previous constituent meetings in June and August of 2005 were a huge success,
generating 24 new co-sponsors on the bill from both parties. In addition, 27
States have now passed voter-verified paper record requirements.
