Constitutional Sheriffs Understand and Enforce the Law in Their Respective Counties.
All Legislation Must Adhere to the Constitutions, Both State and National.
We are a Nation of Laws, and Constitutional Sheriffs Help to Preserve Our Republican Form of Government.
"The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such Regulations, except as to the Places of chusing Senators."
This provision is clear, only the Legislatures of each individual state may create and amend Election Laws.
The ONLY exception provided by the Founding Fathers is that the U.S. Congress may, at any time, set regulations for each state legislature to meet. It is still up to the State Legislatures to decide how to meet regulations set out by the U.S. Congress.

"(2) AUDIT CAPACITY.—
(A) IN GENERAL.—The voting system shall produce a record with an audit capacity for such system.
(B) MANUAL AUDIT CAPACITY.— (i) The voting system shall produce a permanent paper record with a manual audit capacity for such system.
(ii) The voting system shall provide the voter with an opportunity to change the ballot or correct any error before the permanent paper record is produced.
(iii) The paper record produced under subparagraph (A) shall be available as an official record for any recount conducted with respect to any election in which the system is used."
The Help America Vote Act is an example of legislation that the U.S. Congress may, at any time, issue to regulate election practices across the nation. Among the requirements were: Paper Ballots as the Official Vote Record, a Computerized Statewide Voter Registration Database, and the issuance of Provisional Ballots to voters who cannot verify registration or even citizen status.
HAVA is financial incentive for individual counties to adopt computerized voting systems after the 2000 Bush v Gore "Hanging Chads" paper ballot disaster, which cast doubt over the accuracy of traditional paper ballots.
In many states where HAVA funds were accepted and utilized to improve voting systems, we are witnessing election officials regard federally mandated paper ballots as back-ups to the digital records of cast ballots. The actual text of HAVA mandates the opposite of this concept.
Although HAVA was the gateway to adoption of Computerized Voting Systems nationwide, it does mandate an auditable paper trail, which includes, but is not limited to, the use of Paper Ballots.
