3 election law bills, including one for Katherine Harris

(Well, I think the last one below, HR 512 would have discouraged Katharine Harris from cheating in the 2000 election! -KW)

from Ballot Access News
Congressional Committee Passes 3 Election Law Bills

June 11th, 2009

On June 10, the U.S. House Administration Committee passed three bills by Congressmember Susan Davis, a Democrat from San Diego. All three of these bills only relate to federal elections.

[Vote by mail] HR 1604 would require states to let any eligible voter vote by mail. Currently, 22 states do not let any voter vote by mail unless that voter alleges that he or she will be away from home, or is physically unable to visit a polling place on election day. This bill has 50 co-sponsors and passed Committee by a vote of 4-2. It had been introduced on March 19 and is called the “Universal Right to Vote by Mail Act.”

[Track absentee ballots] HR 2510 grants money to states to establish systems to track absentee ballots, so that a voter who votes absentee can learn if the ballot is on the way to him or her, and also if it was received and counted afterwards. HR 2510 was introduced May 20, has 4 co-sponsors, and passed on a voice vote. It is called the “Absentee Ballot Track, Receive and Confirm Act.”

[Re: Chief Election Officers] HR 512 makes it illegal for a state’s chief elections officer to engage in any partisan political activity on behalf of a candidate for federal office, much like the original Hatch Act of 1939 that forbade all federal employees from engaging in partisan political activity. This bill was introduced on January 14, has 2 co-sponsors, and was passed on a voice vote. It is called the “Federal Election Integrity Act.”
