The 2004 Presidential Election may be long–over but that doesn't mean people have stopped talking about it.

Wisconsin Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin and New Jersey Congressman Rush Holt held a conference with Madison residents on Sautrday to discuss ways legislators can improve voter confidence in future elections.

One of the topics discussed involved legislation, written by Holt, which would require a paper trail to document the votes of individuals in states using computerized voting systems.

Baldwin says "If we can't verify that people's intended vote is what was ultimately counted we're gonna be in a lot of trouble."

She and Holt hope this discussion will make constituents more aware of their role in making the electoral process fair and legitimate.
