Legislation regarding adequate numbers of voting machines

I received this from someone in the CA State Assembly. S/he assumes
this is out of our area of interest. But is it?

I don't know if we want to get involved here, but maybe we do. For
expensive machines, there is an incentive to buy as few as possible to
get by. If legislation required a generous number of machines (to
minimize lines, to minimize the need to push early voting, etc.), this
improves the advantage of using an inexpensive system.

I think it's probably worth the effort if we have people interested in
getting involved.

     I know this is out of your area but [assemblymember]
     is interested in doing a bill that requires the adequate
     number of voting machines in each polling place in
     the state based upon per capita. Any leads to an
     organization that is hot for this concept.
