Re: Polling place conditions

Hello Jan:
 
     Karl provided some actual examples. Do you have any? I don't want people to go overboard on this hardware protection issue. The 'cage' concept while interesting, is not something I've been able to find on the web. I've found equipment that protects cpu's and more from weather and hostile working conditions but I haven't yet found a ventilated, lockable, cpu only, surround. Yes, it seems like they should be out there but I guess there is not much of a market for them. Also, the closest fit in terms of equipment that I did find, cost more than a CPU. That's a few of the reasons I've been emphasizing that maybe we should be a little less pessimistic about polling place conditions.
 
Thanks, Ed Kennedy

I think the voter should at least need a crowbar to be able to get
access to the CPU.
