U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer Introduces Bill to Require Certain States to Expand Number of Voting MachinesDecember 5th, 2012
On December 5, U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer introduced a bill to require certain states to expand the number of vote-counting machines. The bill doesn’t have a bill number yet, but it would require the Attorney General to obtain data about which states had precincts in which voters had to stand in line for more than an hour, and require those states to solve the problem. The bill would only apply to federal elections. See this press release from Boxer’s office. Thanks to Rick Hasen for the news.
