Help America Vote Act (HAVA)
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) makes it illegal to apply long established and legally recognized fair use principles, which allowed the reverse engineering of commercially available electronic technology that utilizes encryption. This prohibition on reverse engineering restricts the legitimate investigation of the claims made by electronic voting technology vendors about their equipment.
The vote is a fundamental right conferred to every citizen of our democracy. For this reason, voting should be made as inclusive in nature, design, and implementation as humanly possible. We should strive to increase voter participation by making the processes associated with voting accessible to all citizens regardless of physical ability, language proficiency, or language of origin.
