Re: Draft Proposal Concept for California Secretary of State -- Feedback Wanted

Please note that the writing so far was done with the able help of
Amy Pearl, who wrote:

I think the missing section on what's wrong with existing systems and
their inadequacies should be no more than one page. The purpose of
this version of the proposal is merely to get them to say whether
they are interested enough for us to pursue this. The section should
be the motivation: as scary as possible to provide them with
motivation and ammunition for pursuing this. It should not be a huge
airtight case against Diebold or DRE vendors.

Please help with this section if you can.

Best regards,
Arthur
