I gave a link to the drawing a little earlier today:

In case you missed it, it's an Inkscape SVG file. Inkscape is the open
source replacement for Illustrator. Inkscape is avail free for Linux,
Windows, etc.

The odt file is here:

One other file ... this part is ugly ... I needed to create a separate
PNG for the bar code scan.
http://www.openvotingconsortium.org/ad/bc3.PNG

I had to export the svg file as a bitmap, then replace the picture of
the bar code scanner.

I am asking a graphic artist volunteer to do the whole thing in
Inkscape.

Not exactly. It's a sunk cost. We already paid for them. The point is
that no one is buying voting systems these days. Your framing is
wrong.

 We have to try to do that in some way as best we can.

Not good enough, IMO.
