FAIR ELECTIONS MIGHT BE POSSIBLE IN 2004, AFTER ALL

Our best, and possibly only, opportunity to require a voter-verifiable paper trail everywhere in the U.S. for the November 2004 election is "The Voter Confidence and Increased Accessibility Act of 2003." The House version (H.R. 2239) was introduced in May by Rep. Rush Holt. The Senate version (S. 1980) was introduced in December by Senator Bob Graham.
VerifiedVoting.org is in the midst of a campaign to contact every Senator as many times as possible to let them know how much we care about passing this bill. We have heard that the House bill may not move until the Senators are clear on which of the three voting bills (Clinton's S.1986, Boxer's S.2045, or Graham's S.1980) is gaining the most support. It is important that GRAHAM's bill emerge as the obvious choice, or it is unlikely that we will have a paper trail by this election.
PLEASE take a moment to use the 1-800-839-5276 number and:
1) Call your Senator and ask their position on S. 1980. Tell them you support it, and ask them to co-sponsor.
2) Report the results of your calls to pass2239@verifiedvoting.org so they can update the data about the legislators.
If you need information on the voting issue or the bills go to http://www.verifiedvoting.org.
