HR 3751 - PAPER Act Amends Help America Vote Act

The PAPER Act, introduced by Representative Mark Meadows of NC on September 12th, directs the development of best practices for protecting the integrity of federal elections and requires the study of post-election audits for all federal elections.

"“(B) prior to the certification of the results of any election for Federal office, appropriate election officials conduct a manual audit of a random sample of the paper records of the votes cast in the election, as described in subparagraph (A), that provides high statistical confidence in the results of the election."
