Resolution on improving voter confidence in the national election process set forth in United States Code, Title 2. THE CONGRESS, Chapter 1, ELECTION OF SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES which was enacted pursuant to the United States Constitution, Article 1, Section 4, paragraph 1.
Whereas fair elections must ensure voter confidence;
Whereas fair elections must be transparent;
Whereas fair elections must use uniform procedures;
Whereas fair elections must ensure that only eligible voters cast ballots;
Whereas hand-marked paper ballots are secure, verifiable and auditable;
Whereas post-election audits of paper ballots must verify machine counts;
Whereas states use very different election rules and procedures;
Whereas balloting in some states began forty five days before election day;
Whereas counting ballots in some states continued weeks after election day;
Whereas balloting machines are subject to misuse, malfunction and tampering;
Whereas long lines created by the lack of poll resources are unacceptable;
Whereas longer balloting periods better the chance of election fraud; and
Whereas the last national election was rife with complaints and discord.
Resolved, that the Congress of the United States of America must affect in law a consistent national election process to be used throughout the Republic with modest common sense changes to U.S. Code, Title 2. Chapter 1, §9 by adopting the following additions & deletions:
"Balloting may begin fourteen days prior to the time for election; counting of ballots shall be completed within two days thereafter; all votes for Representatives in Congress must be by written or printed ballot cast either in person or by requested absentee ballot; votes may be counted by or voting machine the use of which has been duly authorized by the State law; all votes received or recorded contrary to this section shall be of no effect."
