Please support HR 550 the "Gold Standard"

Democracy Matters!
Non-partisan commission encourages Verified Voting. Here is a petition/letter to make sure.. we get the real deal, not bu**sh**. or hit link above in title

Please use the above link to send an email to your Representative and to the House Administration Committee urging them to pass HR 550 as written!
The recently-released report of the Baker/Carter Commission on Federal Election Reform called on congress to establish a requirement for a voter verified paper record of every vote and mandatory audits.

VoteTrustUSA hopes you will join us in using the Commission’s recommendations as a catalyst for speedy enactment of Rep. Rush Holt’s Voter Confidence and Increased Accessibility Act (HR 550) which organizations like VerifiedVoting, Common Cause, Working Assets, Electronic Frontier Foundation, Velvet Revolution, and many other national and state election integrity groups have been advocating for more than two years.
We need this to prevent more massive voter disenfranchisement.

There is some concern that the bill may be weakened, and some operatives in some states may be able to find ways that will make the paper trail useless and the entire costly process meaningless. A great deal of thought and work has been put into this and it is considered the GOLD STANDARD of all the bills out there. Thanks!
