25. This is misleading.
paper ballots is only part of the proposed legislation. it also calls for mandatory audits. There were no audits for Gore 2000.

I can't seem to find the text of the bill at the moment, but I'll tell you one thing. Any law that requires voter marked paper ballots and mandatory audits on every federal election is a good thing. while it might not be everything that everyone wants, it is a million times better than what we have now.

I believe any election rights activist who would turn down a bill that requires paper ballots and mandatory audits would be shooting themselves (and our democracy) in the foot.
