Project Boundaries

Hello All:

    Where are the boundaries of the EVM system, especially the Mark I? The current discussion about flat versus more sophisticated data bases brings home to me the importance of where to draw the system boundaries. If the boundaries occur where the ballots, the report, the cd's, the thumb drive, etc. are placed in the ballot box, the box is sealed and the whole thing handed to the election judges, then the flat data base is probably indicated. If the boundaries extend to the other extreme, all the way to the certification of election results by the registrar of voters then we've got the need for a much more sophisticated data base and a much more massive project. I don't think we want to re-engineer what we are referring to as, "Election Central," but the issue does need to be worked through.

Thanks, Ed Kennedy
