The article reports on the issues that arose over the split of Democrats on a proposed election reform bill of U.S. Representative Rush Holt. It relates that the bill provides for the amendment of the 2002 Help America Vote Act (HAVA) requiring states to use voting machines that provide verifiable paper ballot. Moreover, Republicans infer that the apparent Democrat split over the bill reflects that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is losing control of her top lieutenants.
