Except for the "urgency statute" provision (s.3), this bill is almost
identical to the one you posted here on 1/25. I have the same comments
about it as about that one. Attached is a much tighter bill. It
clarifies what needs to be disclosed when, requires the disclosure of
appropriate documentation, fixes the "voting system-specific" issue, and
describes what happens when a vendor wants to modify an existing system.
My bill does not attempt to handle some critical issues, like formal
public review, election-day citizen verification of the software being
used, Nevada Gaming Control Board-style inspections, and parallel
testing. Do we want to try to address these issues now?
