ELECTION DEFENSE ALLIANCE ACTION ALERT:

Halt Holt! Warn Congress to Block HR 811!
H.R. 811: A Clear and Present Danger to Democracy!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DO YOU WANT:

  • Federal legislation that requires computerized voting in every precinct?
  • Voting machines capable of tracking your votes in a government database?
  • Four White House appointees controlling the nation’s election systems?
  • Unfunded mandates and impossible technology timelines that will throw U.S. elections into chaos?

We’d ALL like to think that Rush Holt's bill H.R. 811, the “The Voter Confidence and Increased Accessibility Act” is a good thing. But just like “The Patriot Act,” “No Child Left Behind,” and the “The Healthy Forests Act,” the name doesn't match the reality.

IF IT’S SO BAD

then why have some big names “signed on” to support H.R. 811?
Well-intentioned groups (such as MoveOn and PFAW)--even a small number of voting activist groups--
have been fooled by the PR spin on the Holt Bill (H.R. 811).

H.R. 811 is being sold as “Banning Paperless Voting,”
but here’s what's hidden in the fine print:

HR 811 ACTUALLY REQUIRES MORE COMPUTERIZED VOTING!

The Holt Bill opens the back door to REQUIRING computers in every polling place,
mandating a new generation of unnecessary, unproven computerized voting technology,
adding more secret software to our elections,
and sending at least another $4 BILLION of our taxpayer money to the electronic voting industry
 -and-

H.R. 811 EMPOWERS THE PRESIDENCY TO CONTROL THE NATION’S VOTING SYSTEMS!

HR 811 gives permanent  CONTROL over THE NATION'S VOTING EQUIPMENT to the Election Assistance Commission (EAC) -- FOUR WHITE HOUSE APPOINTEES!

Our Faxes and E-mails Stopped the Fast Track Mark-up. Now let’s Stop the Bill!

FAX Congress NOW and tell them NO! to HR 811!

American democracy depends on every ONE of us and YOU.
Tell our elected representatives that we DO NOT WANT H.R. 811 because we DO WANT meaningful election reform.
True Election Reform Would Preserve and Protect, Not Threaten Our Democratic Traditions!

  • Citizen oversight of all electoral processes
  • Public ownership of any voting system
  • State sovereignty in conducting elections
  • Realistic timelines, sound fiscal policy, and ethics in election administration

It’s not too late to get it RIGHT…
IF WE ACT TODAY.
