Dear Joe (and interested others),

1. I think that the idea for having activity models for the various
voting machines is an excellent one.

2. I'm working on submitting an NSF proposal (through UCSC) for
analyzing existing voting practices and procedures, creates a form of
elections rules database, and creates best practices documents for
various voting processes.

The proposal opportunity is NSF 05-551 (See
http://www.nsf.gov/publications/pub_summ.jsp?ods_key=nsf05551&org=NSF
for specifics on the solicitation.) I will put in some consulting
time for those who help write the proposal and want to participate in
the effort if funded.

Please send me email if you want to participate in proposal writing
or just kibbitzing.

The proposal is due Thursday, May 5, 2005.

Best regards,
Arthur
