Open source voting system development is alive and well

by Larry Geller

This is fascinating. I’m playing with a prototype open source voting system, the SHARP voting machine. Yup, source code is available to look at or modify. It runs on any of my home computers. It can run on an old computer, or one without a hard disk. I ran it from a CD and am playing with it on a virtual machine within Vista. Run from a CD, it cannot be hacked.

Here are some screen shots (click for larger):

Will this be in time for the 2010 elections? No. But still… we could create some jobs working on open source voting systems, using it ourselves in Hawaii and offering systems to other states.

More tomorrow, I want to play with this a bit.
