>The requirement of NYC that we (and other bidders) be in full compliance with state requirements ($$$ paid up) rather than inability to handle the full face NY ballot is the reason only the five were considered by NYC. We handle the ballot just fine, we use open international standards for handling election data (OASIS approved EML), and it is absolutely untrue that NY is unable to "find" an Open Source alternative.

I'm not as familiar with OVS and I am with OVC. When you say you can handle full-face just fine does that mean a touch screen like OVC or a paper ballot scanner.
