think their system is bad. It includes links to English versions
(Act 1 through 3) as well as Portuguese. I should note that, on
paper, Brazil has "public disclosure of source code" written into
law. The dissidents say that this isn't working.

>>I am not surprised. Before Diebold bought the Brazilian system, I had
students who knew Portuguese look at official websites to translate what
was said about standards. There was nothing explicit. When Diebold
bought the technology, I called and spoke to someone who assured me that
experts and the Brazilian government worked in a partnership to create
voting systems that met the "highest standards." But Diebold would not
divulge any details and would not say anything about testing protocols.
