38. Let America Vote Act: Emergency Paper Ballot Mandate of 2006 - SIGN!
Edited on Sat Sep-30-06 10:31 PM by Breeze54
Let America Vote Act: Emergency Paper Ballot Mandate of 2006.

In primaries in Ohio, Maryland, California and numerous states across this nation,
Electronic Voting Machines have caused serious problems at the polls, resulting in
long lines, voters turned way from their polling places, and uncounted or miscounted votes.

We must act now to ensure that every eligible voter can cast a ballot that counts on November 7.
