Okay, in addition to the fact that 11-2 CHANGED EVERYTHING! if you just
go out and google around you'll see there's a big head of steam for
Open Source Election Software. So don't tell me we can't find anyone
to participate...

Check out this Slashdot article from Oct. '04 re: NYT Endorses Open
Source Software Election Software (and read the voluminous comments):

Now here's some tidbits from Googling:

Here's a competing group here in the U.S. "Blue Screen Democracy"
calling for Open Source developers to help write Elex software, Mar 18
of this year!:
