I am hoping that congress looks at this, notices the lack of NIST
standards, Notices the 2006 deadline, notices the lack of paper trails
available, and realizes what a train wreck of rush to market
unstandardized equipment they are going to have and extends the
implementation deadlines. Only downside might be if the HAVA funds
vanish into a vortex of budget deficits. upside is that falling prices
  from Voting machines competition might obviate the need for HAVA
funds anyhow. Or so I might hope.
