This may not be germaine, but might UCTS also be attractive to some
jurisdictions as a redundant tabulation or auditing mechanism? That
is, in addition to buying equipment from the vendor, might it not make
sense for some jurisdictions to have multiple independent tabulators
and see if they come up with the same results? (of course, only a
subset would be audited with UCTS or you'd be counting twice... which
I like but eleciton officials wont).

That is, might it not also be appropriate to market UCTS in the
proposal as 1) a cross-vendor tabulator architecture and 2) an
auditing mechanism such that you should get the same results from the
proprietary tabulator and UCTS.

Just a thought, ... this multiple-modality of UCTS might raise the
attractiveness to the State, Joe
