I have submitted a proposed Data Model for Vote Entry Stations (Voting Booths). In it, there is an entity called POL_PARTY. It has a 1:m relationship to the Candidate Ballot Entries that would allow for writing a Process Model that would accomplish straight party voting. It also models this for multiple winner contests and precludes stuffing the ballot box for cross-endorsed candidates in multiple winner contests.

As a group, we have yet to decide on a Design and Development methodology. I'm hoping we go with something like Data Model and Process Model. If we don't decide on something fairly soon, we'll see ourselves in 2006 as having been too late for a HAVA-compliant voting booth.
