Wednesday, Sep 5 may be the last day you can act before the House vote on "The Voter Confidence and Increased Accessibility Act" (HR811). If you have not already, please find just a few minutes to send a fax or email your Representative.

HR811 will ensure that the voters determine who controls Congress and the Presidency in 2009. Do not have to tell your children someday that democracy ended and that you did nothing. A few minutes of your time is all that is needed now to protect our futures at this critical juncture in history.

SOME ORGANIZATIONS SUPPORTING HR811

Among the election reform groups supporting HR811 along with The National Election Data Archive are Verified Voting, VoteTrustUSA, Vote PA, The Electronic Frontier Foundation, The Brennan Center, People for the American Way, NC Coalition for Verified Voting, Sarasota Alliance for Fair Elections (SAFE), Common Cause, Concerned Voters of Centre County (PA), Save Our Votes (MD), Citizens for Election Integrity
(MN), Iowans for Voting Integrity, and Voting Matters/Oregon.

OTHER INFORMATION

Verified Voting's comments on HR811:

"The most basic elements of the bill remain intact – 2008 requirements for paper ballots as an independent means of verifying electronic vote tabulation, random mandatory audits, disclosure of voting system software, tighter security of electronic voting systems, emergency paper ballots in case of machine failures, provision of funding to enable jurisdictions to upgrade to accessibly verifiable paper-based voting systems, and the establishment of an arm's length between voting machine vendors and testing laboratories. These reforms are important, and must be enacted as soon as possible. Therefore VerifiedVoting.org continues to support H.R. 811."

You may remind your US Representative that there is plenty of time, as well as funding, for states with paperless electronic ballot voting machines to replace them before the 2008 November election and conduct manual audits.

HERE IS A SAMPLE LETTER YOU COULD COPY AND PASTE TO A WORD PROCESSOR AND THEN FAX TO YOUR REPRESENTATIVE:

Dear Representative -----------

Please vote "Yes" on House Resolution 811 and vote "No" on the "unfunded mandate" amendment to it that would gut the requirement for paper ballots and manual election audits in 2008. Here is an easy-to-read, understandable analysis of HR811's provisions: //electionarchive.org/ucvAnalysis/US/Analysis-HR811-Aug2007.pdf

It is time for all 50 States to have verifiably honest accurate elections - and taxpayers deserve more economical voting systems.

Many states have no paper ballots, and even more have no audits of their elections - never comparing voter verifiable paper records with the unofficial vote counts; and many use inaccurate voting systems which have been decertified or scrapped states such as CA, MD, FL,...; leaving them with no way to judge the integrity of their vote counts and electoral process.

The United States needs "The Voter Confidence & Increased Accessibility Act" (H.R. 811).

Together with the $300 Million authorized by the House, States have $1.6+ Billion available in remaining HAVA funding and can afford to meet the 2008 deadlines. See how much money your state has left of HAVA funding on pp. 8 and 9 in the US Election Assistance report //www.eac.gov/docs/Congressional%20Report%20Public%20Release%20Final.pdf

There is plenty of time for states with paperless electronic voting systems to replace them with auditable voting equipment. See how long it takes States to replace voting systems in Verified Voting's "How Long Does it Take to Change a Voting System?" //electionmathematics.org/em-voting-systems/VotingSystemChange.pdf

PLEASE DONATE - WE NEED FUNDS URGENTLY

There is a huge amount of work to be done yet to finish deriving and explaining the mathematics and procedures for conducting valid election audits. NEDA did not get funded by PEW to finish its work in this area, so we need your help. Please donate to the National Election Data Archive. We urgently need to raise sufficient funds to hire an additional staff person to keep up with the growing work-load. NEDA could accomplish a lot more if there were sufficient donations to pay just one person's salary. (Our financials are available here for your review: //electionarchive.org/ucvInfo/financial/FinancialStmts2004-2006.pdf) Please donate whatever amount you can by credit card, PayPal, or by mailing a check. Even $5 or $10/month would be a big help. Please donate. We need your on-going help. Thank you. See //electionarchive.org/fairelection/donate.html

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Kathy Dopp Executive Director, National Election Data Archive //electionarchive.org

I'll spare you – but contact me if you want a point by point rebuttal to it.
