The Politics of Honest Voting | Linux Journal

"My writing of this editorial was inspired by what sounded like an effort to get an open-source solution in place. I read an article about the Open Voting Consortium and went to the group's Web page with great hopes. Unfortunately, after a few minutes of reading, I saw more politics.

The most prominent information on the site is the group's request for contributions totaling $1.5 million to 'take back our election system'. The Consortium uses the word 'open' over and over on the site, but what it wants to do with that $1.5 million isn't very clear."
