Important Action Memo from Nancy Tobi and Paul Lehto

Stopping H.R. 550 because we can't compromise on democracy
by Nancy Tobi and Paul Lehto

The premise of the Help America Vote Act (HAVA), that public oversight
of elections can be outsourced to corporate interests with secret vote
counting technology, is dangerous to American democracy. We need a
moratorium on new legislation; an accounting of HAVA monies spent, on
what, to whom, and to what end; and a recovery plan from the HAVA
disaster. We reject compromise legislation like H.R. 550, because
there is no compromise on democracy.
