Re: question about "A PC-Based Open-Source Voting Machine"

Right now the software is for a fixed election. They could demo a
"mock" election with 4 computers and a (Postscript) printer. The
first 3 of these could be PCs or Macs. The fourth must be a PC.
They could write critiques of the system and how they would improve

The software is available, although I'm not sure where the latest
version is. We'll figure that out and get you running copies well
before your class starts.

Best regards,
