Dear Friends,

There is an opportunity to apply for funding to NSF for the Digital
Government initiative under NSF 05-551.

I am planning to write such a proposal. Your feedback is welcome.
It's due Thursday, May 5th.

Vote: Voting Operations Technology Evaluation

1. Analysis of Voting System equipment processes (e.g., Joe Hall's
work on Activity Model for Sequoia AVC Edge w/ VVPAT)
* Outcome: Activity Model for various voting systems
2. Analysis of Voting System procedures manuals
3. Analysis of "county" processes (e.g., working with election
officials) for precinct-based and central operations
* Outcome of 2 and 3: Activity Models, Threat Analyses, Best
Practices document, Election Rules database)

Scope includes polling place voting systems, absentee ballots,
provisional ballots, central ("county") canvassing

Please let me know if you would like to collaborate on this proposal
and, if funded, on the effort (as an paid or unpaid contributor)

Best regards,
Arthur
