The Voter Confidence and Increased Accessibility Act of 2003

Morat and Different Strings are trying to drum up support for Rep. Rush Holt's HR 2239, known as the Voter Confidence and Increased Accessibility Act of 2003, which would:

  1. require all voting systems to produce a voter-verified paper record for use in manual audits and recounts
  2. ban the use of undisclosed software and wireless communications devices in voting systems
  3. require all voting systems to meet these requirements in time for the general election in November 2004
  4. requires that electronic voting systems be provided for persons with disabilities by January 1, 2006
  5. require mandatory surprise recounts in 0.5% of domestic jurisdictions and 0.5% of overseas jurisdictions

I support all that, and I join in with Morat and Thorswitch in urging people to write to their Congresspeople and Senators in support of this bill. In fact, I think this would make for an excellent project for Flood The Zone Friday and will suggest the same to the Not Geniuses boys . (Note that I mean a project of writing to one's reps, and not just to the local fishwrap.) Take a moment and check it out.

EFF has set up an action center that will automatically forward a letter to your representative supporting HR 2239
