Legislation Would Mandate Voter-Verified Paper Ballots and Routine Random Audits

Rep. Rush Holt (NJ-12) today thanked Senator Bill Nelson of Florida and Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island for introducing an updated Senate version of his legislation to require voting systems to produce a voter-verified paper ballot and mandate routine random audits.

"Senators Nelson and Whitehouse deserve credit for recognizing the need to give Americans confidence that elections are accurate and verifiable. I look forward to working with them to pass this legislation in Congress and send it to the President for his signature. Congress shouldn't wait to protect voters' rights, ensure the accuracy of elections, and increase the confidence of our citizens in their electoral system," Holt said.

Earlier this year, the Committee on House Administration approved the Voter Confidence and Increased Accessibility Act (H.R. 811). Holt is working with House Leadership to bring the bill to the floor for a vote.
