May as well add the provision for allowing for ID checks at the poling stations to verify the voter has the legal right to vote in the district they are voting in.

A verifiable vote on paper to be verified by the voter means the dead can no longer vote…neither can cartoon characters.

The Dead won’t be very grateful to lose this privilege! And cartoon characters are going to be looney!

…… not to mention illegals voting! The Democrats will never go for it!

I agree with ntobi. While perhaps well-intentioned, this bill is seriously flawed. It does not accomplish what American citizens need to ensure fair and honest elections. To get some good info and see what the core issues are, read this concise argument against the bill:

While the bill seems on the surface to be a step in the right direction, we should all be aiming for a much higher standard. We deserve true democracy. After all, we’re America, dammit!

This bill is a terrible bill and an affront to our system of government. It aims to put more power in the hands of the Executive, giving it control over the nation’s elections and even certification of election results. (The White House has final say over election results.) It mandates concealed vote counting by making nondisclosure agreements with e-voting corporations federal law. It proposes additional high tech e-voting equipment with trade secret concealed vote counting. No public oversight, corporate controlled elections. This is exactly the kind of bill anyone interested in open government MUST OPPOSE. And IT MUST GO DOWN IN FLAMES because Holt keeps trying to push it through every session. Time to tell Congress that We the People are taking back our elections. Elections are the mechanism of open government. Without public oversight, we have no democracy.
