U.S. Senate Hearing on Electronic Voting Wednesday, Feb. 7 

This Wednesday the U.S. Senate Committee on Rules and Administration will hold a public hearing titled, "The Hazards of Electronic Voting: Focus on the Machinery of Democracy". The hearing begins at 10 a.m. Eastern time, in room SR-301 of the Russell Senate Office Building. There is a robust lineup of witnesses including: Congressman Rush Holt, author of federal legislation to mandate a federal voter-verified paper record requirement; Lowell Finley, California's new Deputy Secretary of State who has litigated successful challenges to voting systems in California and other states; Professor Dan Wallach of Rice University; Conny McCormack, Los Angeles County's registrar of voters; and Warren Stewart, policy director for Vote Trust USA.

Hopefully the hearing will be carried on TV via C-SPAN; from looking at their web site, it appears that the hearing will be webcast live on the site

(# 4:58 PM)
