According to the small snippet in the email, HR3906 provides financial
incentives for states and jurisdictions to conduct audits and have paper
ballots. I can not support this legislation and I will voice my opposition
to the contacts listed in the email. What this bill says to me is that the
federal government will punish those that already have worked to secure
paper ballots and audits by taking their money and giving it to those who
have not worked for those things. If the people of these states and
jurisdictions want paper ballots and audits then they should get together
and work for them. I don't consider this to be federal business.
HR281 is another example of the federal government interfering in state
issues. If the people in those states want mail ballots they should demand
them. Allowing the fed more and more interference with state voting laws is
dangerous, encourages apathy, and is a recipe for disaster in the long
I encourage everyone to oppose both of these bills.
