THE FUTURE OF voting equipment--OPEN SOURCE
Voting equipment can be more secure and less expensive, while facilitating election processes which provide for more accurate representation of the people (and therefore, better leadership).
Open Voting Consortium holds the promise of an inexpensive system, with equipment you can buy at a store, software that is developed by volunteers and fully transparent to ensure security, and a voter-friendly interface that is easily accessible for disabled voters, all with a paper trail. And, I should add, fully capable of processing ranked ballots. Estimated price per machine is 1/5 of what ES&S charges.
