    for years now, I've been trying to emphasize the cosumer reliability angle on the evoting machines -- inadequately tested software, produced on the cheap gives bad results. And expensive results, too, as far as local jurisdictions are concerned. And we don't need to speculate -- the history of bad results from evoting software is on the record, in hundreds of local stories reporting local problems with elections, and with voting software not working when delivered, or not being delivered on time at all.

    I think a high-profile IT public/private partnership would be a great thing -- I've never met a software professional who didn't understand the risks of proprietary software, and especially in a situation where end users -- i.e., voters -- don't really have a clue whether it's working right or not.
