Hello All:

OK. A proposal is now made that people support the Open Voting Consortium in its efforts. Let me further propose that support be according to interest, time and capactiy. The support would be to provide one full time executive for the consortium and the immediate goal would be to make an electronic voting machine that produces ballots, uses open source software, runs on 'commodity' computers and also makes a back up electronic record according to ideas under development at http://openvotingconsortium.org.

Any seconds or am I going about this the wrong way? At the moment, this topic seems to ran out of steam and I'm hoping to jump start it this way.

Thanks, Ed Kennedy

We in North Carolina would like to be able to propose an open source code election system as soon as possible.

Our General Assembly has appointed an Electronic Voting Commission to evaluate having VVPB. We have 2 good activists on this Commission. If we can offer a federally certified open source solution, there is a chance we can throw out the corrupt vendors embedded in our election process.

We will not have such a good opportunity later.

Time is of essence, though. See my website http://www.ncvoter.net to see how bad things are in North Carolina.
