Why HR811?

The Voter Confidence and Increased Accessibility Act of 2007 (HR811) would benefit the integrity and security of US elections by requiring independent manual audits of the accuracy of Federal election outcomes, checking the machine counts.  The bill allows States to adopt alternative methods of recounts and audits for Federal elections as long as NIST approves the alternative methodology.  There is ample time for states using paperless voting systems to implement auditable voting systems by November 2008. Historically it has taken 4 to 12 months for States to change voting systems.   Virtually every jurisdiction is familiar with using optical scan paper ballots for military, absentee, and over-seas voting.

Congress should vote “YES” on HR811 and “NO” on any unfunded mandate amendment.   Click "read more" for a list of some of the national and state organizations supporting HR 811.
