Following the 2000 election, Rep. Ros-Lehtinen has supported efforts to ensure that all Americans trust our electoral process. Ileana is a strong supporter of requiring a paper trail for electronic voting machines to ensure that every vote is counted. She co-sponsored the Know Your Vote Counts Act, requiring a paper record of every cast ballot in Federal elections. This followed her support of the Help America Vote Act, which was signed into law in response to the 2000 election. As a strong advocate of democracy around the world, Ileana is committed to ensuring that all Americans have a voice in government.
