A lot of important decisions are nearing completion. Members of Congress are deciding whether they are happy with HR-811 as it came out of committee. Many members have said they are no longer in support of the bill. Riverside Co. California supervisors have a decision whether to follow the recommendation of their study group to rid the county of Direct Recording Electronic (DRE) voting machines. San Francisco California election officials have to decide whether they will have to count ballots by hand in November. And Pennsylvania counties that use ES&S DREs have to decide whether they want to continue paying the exorbitant fees for machine warranties. And, by the way, speaking about decisions; many groups decided to support, and pleaded with their members to support, HR-811 two-weeks before the bill was even filed. Yet, those same groups are totally mum on S-1487 even though it is due to go to committee hearing in a week. Why the silence? Why are they not standing up and being vocal about their support for democracy and opposition to the bill?...
