Speak Out Now To Protect the Integrity Of Our Democracy!
Representative Rush Holt (D-NJ) has introduced the "Emergency Assistance for Secure Elections Act of 2008". This act will help election authorities using e-voting to convert to paper ballots, offer emergency paper ballots or convert audits by hand counts. We want to make sure that every vote is counted, that every election result is verifiable.
According to Holt, there are six states that have no verifiable paper trail and counties in 14 other states have the same problem. That means 20 states cannot fully verify their votes in the primaries or the November Presidential election.
This is no way to run a Democracy. This legislation needs to be passed immediately to protect our elections! Our democracy can only be as strong as the integrity of our elections. It is critical that we support Rep. Holt?s legislation. Citizens need to know that their vote will be counted, and that they can trust our electoral process.
