Help America Vote Act en The Help America Vote Act <p>In 2002, Congress passed the <a href="" target="_blank">Help America Vote Act</a> to avoid the Florida controversy during the 2000 election. North Carolina had some $4 million in federal funds coming to it from the HAVA, but the state needed to provide an extra $600,000 in its own voting budget to release those funds. Last week, the House and Senate chose to hold back the $600,000. Tue, 26 Jun 2012 14:57:00 +0000 Frank Stasio & Shawn Wen 4392 at
