neatly examine Kucinich's HR 6200 (Hand counted paper ballots) and you've got a big head delivery on what his issues are with HR 811. The Kucinich press liberate additionally states "the important thing to engaging voters” Kucinich cited emphatically “is finished credibility of the electoral technique. I plan to proceed my oversight hearings on election integrity.”"
but past that, he frequently needs activist considerations dealt with. Uh, that might imply bradblog's concerns, Bev Harris's considerations, Paul Lehto's concerns, Nancy Tobi's issues, Teresa Hommel's issues, Voterunites' councerns, MaryAnn Gould's concerns, Mark Crispin Miller's issues, and your issues Michelle, if you have them.

Stalin used a hundred% paper ballots, yet all the time received by means of essentially the most grandiose of margins.
He explained his constant victories through asserting "It isn't who votes that counts, however who counts the votes".
Paper ballots have been pleasant with Stalin.
and they are pleasant with me ... as long as the counting isn't completed through Stalinists.
So on to the factor at hand, how can we inject honesty into this system?
Our movement is fitting a religion-primarily based stream, if we suppose that the absence of honesty might be overcome with legislations.

Snowballs materialize when ample snowflakes social gathering for a common cause. Let's hope anti-Holt invoice sentiments are expressed/snowballs on Capitol Hill. we can do greater than HR-811 to restore integrity to the American election system.
KKKarl Rove has his foot in the door to tamper with and manipulate the election manner. That door which ends up in gaming our elections should be slammed shut so Rove's foot certainly not crosses that threshold once more.
No loopholes for that anti-democracy fascist who hates the usa to his core. Rove and the Rove desire-to-be soldiers are not to be relied on. They are searching for to contaminate the election method - we cannot stand by means of and allow them to do this.

Paper ballots are a start.
Counted with the aid of HAND, not by means of computerized tabulator able to making adjustments within the effect and/or having distinctive rules for "rejection" in line with the colour of your skin or the measurement of our checking account.
effects posted TRANSPARENTLY on the native degree so that big calculators can't change the results down at election HQ to swimsuit the Rethuglican thieves, liars, and scum.
Election-day registration with proof of eligibility in order that no one receives disenfranchised for being bad, ethnic, or desirous to vote apart from Rethuglican.
Two-(24-hour)-day election days that are FEDERAL vacations so that people with jobs that do not give free break day can vote.
honest recounts, not like that Rethuglican crap in Florida or Ohio.
elementary stuff, actually, if you desired a good and reasonable electoral method.

For those of you who need the "elevator speech" (quick sufficient to clarify to a person on the elevator) as to why the Holt invoice, often known as HR 811, also referred to as the V-CIA invoice (Voter confidence & multiplied Accessibility) --- here it's. The DRE provisions are dangerous, however now not the worst thing concerning the bill. beneath are the "dealbreakers":
The elevator speech -
THERE ARE THREE issues WITH THE HOLT bill AND ITS SENATE companion invoice, THE FEINSTEIN invoice:
1) For the primary time ever, FEDERALIZES requirements for secret vote counting on secret software
2) Expands and locks in the power to manage elections through 4 White house appointees, who might be in cost of the key vote counting software (see above)
3) on account of 1) and 2) above, the invoice isn't just "bad" (that means, it can be fastened), it's dangerous, in that it adjustments the manner our democracy works and subsequently, dismantles democracy itself.
* * * * *
On factor 1) the situation is the unprecendented federal sanction for proprietary change secret application, enforced via nondisclosure agreements which raise with them the complete punitive penalties below the legislation, for the lifetime of the "exchange secret", and by the way, alternate secrets have no expiration date.
On element 2) above, Holt's workplace has supplied disinformation and has indicated even to others in congress that the EAC (4 White house appointees) provisions that were objected to in the first edition had been corrected; they have not. The latest edition of the invoice explicitly empowers the EAC, which it refers to as "The fee" 32 instances and quintuples the quantity of funding given The fee, indefinitely.
And on point 3) above, these adjustments create an unheard of shift in energy, and quite simply dismantle democracy.

"When asked about reintroducing HR 6200, his invoice calling for hand counted paper ballots within the presidential race for final session, Kucinich stated it would be 'very soon,'" in response to the campaign's press unencumber, which became also posted through Democracy for new Hampshire election integrity advocate Nancy Tobi at OpEdNews today.
ok, I get why the Holt invoice is unhealthy and that i'm excited by 100% paper ballots. What I do not get presently is the need for hand counting. In my state, we do use the optical scanners to procedure paper ballots. Now, I take into account that it be viable to rig the optical scanners, but i might like to consider there may still be a method to address this come what may.
Hand counting every pollsounds very slow/laborious to me and will introduce more human error into the method. can not we use technology in some comfortable and transparent solution to pace up the counting of paper ballots? Feed a stack of ballots via diverse optical machines to verify constant results?
remark #9 [Permalink]... CharlieL spoke of on 6/12/2007 @ 10:47 am PT...
Optical scanning machines are not just COUNTING the ballots --- they even have (exchange secret protected in Holt) utility in them.
software that may effortlessly say... "For every 9th pollthat scanns as a Democrat, change it to the Rethuglican."
they could even have different suggestions for once they "kick back" a ballot, corresponding to they did in 2000, 2004 and 2006 where rich and/or white (Rethuglican-tending) voters who make a mistake get their ballots kicked back with "there may be an issue with this ballot, repair it" and bad or black or hispanic or different ethnic (Democratic-tending) voters who make a mistake get their ballots permitted with none commment (or opportunity to appropriate) after which "spoiled" due to the error, and by no means counted.
this is one of the crucial techniques the Rethuglican monsters, liars, thieves and scum stole 3,000,000 votes in 2000, 5,000,000 votes in 2004, 6,000,000 votes in 2006 and plan to steal 10,000,000 votes in 2008.
You comprehend, no depend how tons of the country believes in your values and platform, getting previous a ten,000,000 deficit in a one hundred twenty,000,000 race is not convenient.
Paper ballots COUNTED with the aid of HAND. or not it's in fact not as difficult as it looks.
remark #10 [Permalink]... big dan talked about on 6/12/2007 @ eleven:39 am PT...
...and entire participation via the public in counting! i will be able to take off a day of work to do so!
How come the Dems don't suggest a vacation for election day? That all the time receives dropped. It extra crucial than a day off for Christmas, it truly is for certain!
the place IS THE law FOR NOV. 2 BEING A national holiday??????????????????????
so they can WATCH THE COUNTING extra cautiously?

The 3 complications with the Holt bill, as pointed out in Bev Harris, are a succinct manner of explaining a global problem present in election processes everywhere.IF a paper counting procedure may also be grew to become right into a participatory open technique on the native degree which, in flip, passes on the transparent local counting to larger stages with all to peer the effects: then this method can be an answer.Transparency and open participatory counting system on the local stage and open certifiable facts passed on for all to peer the effects of a secret ballot: these are the critical foundations for making feel of any 'we the individuals' controlling the operation of our personal executive.The complete world has viewed the fraudulent election video games of 2000 & 2004 and democracy, US election-vogue stands ridiculed.Paper ballot counting with transparent, participative involvement of citizens, is the key.References :
