[tlug] Somewhat OT- open source software for US voting machines


I found this article to be pretty interesting:

    "When asked about future elections, Bowen said the one technology
she'd like to see integrated into voting systems tomorrow is open-source
software for creating ballots and tabulating votes. Both tasks are
horrendously complicated, she added, and so need to be very carefully

IMHO, this is a very good idea. There needs to be electoral
accountability at every step of the way, especially with these machines
responsible for counting the votes.

Diebold probably isn't be too happy about this development however- how
can they "deliver the votes to the President" without those good old
unauthorized emergency patches? Har har.
