Hello, Jim
thanks for your great work over the years on electronic voting.

On bbvforums it looked like your last posting on the Windows CE COTS
issue was around late 2007.

In 2006 I brought this up to the elections board in Georgia during a
hearing (supported by material you posted as well as the RRLee
affidavit). The director (Evans) said he would look into it but I have
not heard back from them since. It seems that Kennesaw's laughable
answer "we've tested the INTERACTIONS of those components thoroughly"
(which is on public record and on Google video) is sufficient for our
public servants, who probably believe that the statement equates to a
source code audit.

I am hoping to get attention on this issue by piggy-backing it on the
current Martin/Chambliss contest, which was close and has required a

Do you know the status of this in Georgia? Are we using voting
machines here that do not qualify to be voting machines? How can we
keep them from burying this?

thanks for your help
