The House Administration (full committee) is planning to markup Rep. Holt's Voter Confidence and Increased Accessibility Act of 2007 (HR. 811) on Thursday, March 29th at 10am. Any letters in opposition to this bill’s lack of a ban of DREs should be addressed to House Administration and faxed to them today or tomorrow so they can be inserted in the Record. Meanwhile a judge in Orange Co. California ruled in a contested election that the "voter verified paper audit trail" [VVPAT] did not have to be counted. And one more Cuyahoga Co. Ohio board of elections member has resigned leaving just one member to be removed from his position by the Secretary of State.
