HR 550 Lobby Days Efforts Corral More House Members

Hundreds of e-voting reform "activists" (average citizens passionate about e-voting reform) returned to Capitol Hill this morning to push for passage of HR 550, with help from the "I Count Coalition," made up of EFF, VerifiedVoting.Org, Common Cause, VoteTrustUSA, Working Assets, and VotersUnited.org.

As a result of these efforts, more House members have signed on to the bill. In addition to the members who signed on yesterday, today's names include:

Rep. Ray LaHood (R-IL)
Rep. John Shimkus (R-IL)
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA)
Rep. Ben Chandler (D-KY)
