I oppose H.R. 289: Value Our Time Elections Act because the security needed to safeguard online elections from fraud simply does not exist. This is a horrifyingly bad idea.

I oppose H.R. 289: Value Our Time Elections Act because...I don't think their should be any other way to vote than showing up at the polling place; EXCEPT when a person is ill, handicapped, or is going to be out of the area. I am totally against the MAIL IN process used by the State of Washington; and I think the internet would allow one more level of possible fraud.

I oppose H.R. 289: Value Our Time Elections Act because, with all the fraud on the Internet, this would only compound voting problems. We have early voting and absentee voting and do not need this too. Why all the attention to voter laws, when we have millions out of work and prices rising. Can someone please focus on this? What a waste of energy!
