OVC has a big opportunity in Utah now where Lt. Governor Elect Gary
Herbert has already met with Alan Dechert and is favorably inclined to OVC
system.

Good news in Utah.

The Utah Election office dropped its plans to select DRE voting equipment
of Diebold or ES&S during the administration of Utah's Lt. Governor
McKeachnie.

This means that the voting equipment selection process will be restarted
in January under the incoming Lt. Governor Elect Gary Herbert.

These two documents (below) that were handed out to Utah legislators were
instrumental in the success of our efforts here in Utah, and may be of
interest to those leading efforts in other states:

Next in Utah, we will push for adoption of this open source voting system:

We just need to find a PhD computer scientist now to be a PI in Utah and
lead the customization of OVC for Utah and accept HAVA funds to do so.

Review the history of our efforts here in Utah leading up to our
successful attempt to stop Utah from selecting ES&S or Diebold's DRE
voting machines on http://utahcountvotes.org
