Re: [SPAM][CASE_OH] Ohio Post Election Audits

Brent,

 

I think most (or probably all of us) would like to see proprietary vendor
hardware/software replaced with open source systems.

 

My understanding is that Sec Brunner will not force voting system changes
unless there are funds to replace them. Although open source would be less
expensive that vendor systems, they still take time and money.

 

In addition to a demo, a BOE would probably want

. some information on how they would implement the ballot printer

. what kind of PC & printers will work

. who could support them

. who else is using them (references)

. etc

 

Is information like that available?

 

Thanks,

 

Ron

Ron- Great work- As usual, I hope you are mentioning your support for
open source systems- Specifically the ballot printer downloadable here-
http://www.openvotingconsortium.org/ad/ovcdemo5.iso

 

It is crucial we get the first count correct- Audits are great, but
obviously without a secure first count we are up against the wall from the
get go-

 

Also, certification of the systems is not appropriate with proprietary code-
SOS JB knows this- Please vocalize your support for OS-

 

Best- BT

Members of the SoS's VRI workgroup on Voting Technology (along with some
audit experts) gave a presentation on the Ohio Audit White to Sec Brunner
and staff members on April 17.
 
The presentation can be found here:
http://www.caseohio.org/Documents/Reports/OH_Election_Systems_20080417.ppt
The white paper is here:
http://www.caseohio.org/Documents/Reports/Ohio_Audit_White_Paper_Feb_2008.pd
f
Cost estimates based on 2004/2006 are here:

The presentation was well received and questions/discussion continued for
about hour beyond the presentation.
Sec Brunner expressed an interest in details of how our recommended
statistical audit would be handled in practice (compared to a Tiered audit).
 
We expect to continue working on recommendations for November audits,
possibly including recommendations for

. procedures for a statistical method for selecting precincts

. the Observer Directive to make sure observers are not just
watching from a distance

. BOE security plans

. Chain of custody audits

Ron
