Hello Phil, David, Alan, Peter, Fred, and Arthur,

Utah has the opportunity to restart its voting equipment selection process
under incoming Lt. Governor Gary Herbert.

I called the Utah Election Office on Friday and was told that plans have
been dropped to select voting equipment in December as originally planned.
(They weren't advertising this on their web site.)

IMO, We should be ready with a proposal for Utah County Commissioner, Lt.
Governor Elect Gary Herbert, to do a thorough scientific analyses of
Utah's election system needs that considers an open source system with
VVPB. Our study will assist the state of Utah to develop new requirements
for its voting and election systems RFP by June or July, in time to
purchase a system to be used in June 2006.

Prior to the election, Lt. Governor Elect Gary Herbert promised that he
would meet with us after the election if he were elected.

Would any of you, such as Arthur Keller of UC Berkely, David Dill of
Stanford, and Phillip Windley of BYU, or others be willing to put together
a proposal to present to Gary Herbert?

Alan Dechert of the Open Voting Consortium could assist with the study
itself and Fred McLain can put together a demo.

Utah can lead America with the best voting system. The time is now
because this study needs to start in January so that it can be completed
by June.

Best Regards,

Kathy Dopp
