What can I do to help in regards to touch screen voting machines in my community?

So I went to vote today, and was rather surprised when I was asked if I wanted to use the touch screen or paper. I politely declined the touch screen and went with paper. Due to the problems with electronic voting
, I'd like to help the community stay with paper, or improve the problems with the touch screens. My questions:
1) Is there any sort of unified effort towards this goal that could give me good resources as far as real facts? I don't want to base anything on hype.
2) Are all touch screens fraught with the problems that the
Premier Election Solutions machines have? I couldn't get a good look at the machine, so I have no idea what brand it is.
3) I'm planning on writing a letter or two once I have all of my information together. Is there anything else I should be doing?
