Dear Election Integrity Advocate,

We need your help in our nation's Capitol on Thursday and Friday, April 6 and 7, when VoteTrustUSA will join forces with a coalition of citizens and grassroots organizations in Washington D.C. to urge Members of Congress to join more than 160 of their fellow Representatives, including 10 Republicans, who have already signed up to cosponsor H.R.550, Rep. Rush Holt's Voter Confidence and Increased Accessibility Act. HR 550 would require a voter verified paper record of every vote, establish mandatory random hand counted audits to verify the accuracy of electronic tallies, and 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 Lobby Day events in June and August of 2005 were a huge success,generating 24 new cosponsors on the bill from both parties. Please join us in Washington DC April 6 and 7, to build even greater bipartisan support for this critical bill.


If you have never lobbied before, don't worry. The HR 550 "I Count" Coalition (VoteTrustUSA, Common Cause, Verified Voting, Voters Unite and Electronic Frontier Foundation) will hold a training session on the morning of April 6, where you'll get plenty of tips and all the information you'll need. With your help, we'll bring enough co-signers onboard to pass the legislation in time to make a difference in this year's elections!

We'll meet Thursday morning, April 6 from 9 am til Noon for the training session. Then we'll fan out across the Hill for meetings with members of Congress and staff from Noon til 5 p.m. at Capitol Hill office buildings Aferward, we'll get together for a gala reception with Rep. Holt and other special guests on Capitol Hill. On Friday morning there will be a press conference and live blogging at the Capitol and then we'll split up for more lobbying appointments, On both days, you'll be lobbying in a group with other concerned citizens from your state.
