Interesting. I suppose these are paperless voting machines? A step in the right direction, but still unacceptable.

  Brazil Open Source Voting

  Filed under: Election Protection — by Joyce Cole @ 5:06 pm
  Brazil is light years ahead of the US in alternatives to petroleum based fuels (plus they just found an undersea source of lots of the sticky goo) and now they are showing the way in election protection.

    The brazilian Election Supreme Court announced at April 4th 2008, that the 2008 elections at Brazil will use GNU / Linux electronic voting machines with software digital authentication.
    The Tribunal Superior Eleitoral (the brazilian Election Supreme Court), officially announced on April 4th, 2008, that the brazilian 2008 elections will use 430 thousand electronic voting machines migrated from VirtuOS and Windows CE to GNU / Linux and open source softwares for security and auditing defined by proper law.
    All open source and in-house developed software will be digitally signed and all loaded software will may be verified at voting places by inspectors at any time to check against tampering.
