Thanks for the news Rank...But a question. You said (my emphasis here):

He made the remarks below and then announced that he's introduced H.R. 6200, a bill to guarantee that the 2006 election will be conducted on "hand counted, paper ballots, counted and posted at the precinct level" with the process open to all to observe. This was a real stunner. There is some legislation out there on stop gap measures but this is the whole 9 yards, the ultimate in election integrity - Machines are Gone under this legislation...GONE.

My understanding is that the bill refers to PRESIDENTIAL Elections only. So, no matter what is done here before the Nov. 7, 2006 election (and I believe Congress has already recessed for the election), this legislation would apply to 2008 -- NOT 2006, as you suggested above.


I presume it was either a typo, or a misunderstanding on your part, but happy for any clarification you may have.

Gracias! And give my best to all the folks in the Buckeye! Sorry I wasn't able to make it out there!
