4. Such a bill would help Pennsylvania too along with the rest of the 25% of US voters that...

...currently are forced to vote on completely paperless Direct Recording Electronic voting machines. PA has an audit law, but 85% of the voters in our state have no paper ballot so there is nothing TO audit.

A shame? Yes, darn right it is a shame this bill was never passed. You can thank Democratic Leadership back in 2007, particularly Steny Hoyer, for ruining it. The 2009-2010 version of this bill, HR 2894, was the strongest version with the most diverse support but people didn't push hard enough.

When another presidential election goes funky, some will have only themselves to blame.
