Rep. Rush Holt's href="http://www.eff.org/deeplinks/archives/001739.php">non-partisan
e-voting reform bill, href="http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d109:HR00550:@@@C">H.R. 550
continues to gather support and momentum among individual members of Congress.
And rightly so: it's a well-considered package of fixes to the vulnerabilities
of electronic voting machines, requiring voter-verified paper ballots, manual
audits to confirm that voting machines are operating correctly, better
security requirements, full software disclosure, and more. Thousands of EFF
supporters have lobbied for the bill; many have joined us in visiting href="http://www.eff.org/deeplinks/archives/003644.php">Washington to lobby
for the bill in person.

The bill is now waiting its turn in the House Administration Committee. To
urge matters along, href="http://frogsdong.blogspot.com/2005/11/support-hr-550-verified-voting-is.html">bloggers
are joining with Rep. Holt to petition the committee to vote and pass it onto
the House. Add your name to
the chorus of politicians and citizens calling for better e-voting
. Then
write to your own
representative
using our Action Center, and ask him or her to lobby on
your behalf. If you write a blog, add your own link to the petition and explanation of how important verified e-voting will be. Every little push the Holt Bill gets moves us closer to safe and
secure e-voting.
