Re: What should be in a good open records law?

Improvement would depend on what features of law now keep the public from seeing the GEMS records of elections. Otherwise, a general change may not disturb the bureaucrat who now keeps the public at bay.

Here in PA the legislature is in the process of improving our open records law. This law will not address elections in particular, but its general language about open records will affect our ability to get information about the conduct of elections, particularly elections conducted on paperless DRE's.

Can anyone suggest language that would ensure (without specifically mentioning elections) that we can get Diebold GEMS records and other useful computer-generated traces of election conduct?

Thanks!
