The October issue of Communications of the ACM is a special
issue on voting. See:

   http://portal.acm.org/toc.cfm?id=1022594
   Communications of the ACM, 47, 10 (October 2004)

One of the articles (noncontroversial) is by me, another is
on the ITA process, important reading for anyone who expects
to develop code that is placed before the ITAs. One article
is one that many here will disagree with:

   Source availability and e-voting: an advocate recants
     by Jason Kitcat.
     A former proponent of requiring the availability of
     e-voting system source code explains why he no longer
     develops source-available e-voting software.

He raises serious questions that we must also address, but
we have already addressed some of these, and we ought to organize
our answer carefully and present it in response to Kitcat's comments.
