Almost all of the interesting election law bills in the U.S. House have continued to add co-sponsors during June. In order of how many co-sponsors each bill has, here is a list:
1. Popular vote on Puerto Rico status: 151 (HR 2499)
2. Paper Trail for Vote-Counting Machines: 80 (HR 2894)
3. Public Funding for Congressional Candidates: 56 (HR 1826)

5. Anti-Gerrymandering: 12 (HR 3025)
6. Requiring Presidential Candidates to Submit a Birth Certificate: 6 (HR 1503).
The only interesting bill that has no co-sponsors is HR 665, to provide that D.C. voters should be treated as Maryland voters, for purposes of congressional elections. Representative Dana Rohrbacher (R-California) introduced it in February.
