    The Hart systems are largely functional; I have very few problems with them, and it appears they're willing to work to resolve their few remaining issues (except maybe that the permanent paper record cannot be read back to a blind person, allowing them to validate their auditable vote...).  I do find that their lack of flexibility in voting mechanisms like IRV to be annoying...  Their eScan has some issues, and I wouldn't mind shipping that back for a redesign...

    Every Diebold system in this country should be shipped back to the manufacturer, postage due on arrival, accompanied by an invoice cancellation and request for refund and a note asking them to see the election board in court to discuss losses due to non-functioning equipment.

    I don't have enough experience with ES&S or Sequoia to know.

    Furthermore, all of the manufacturers need to be told, via a new law, that their software and hardware will be subject to open and complete audits for design, reliability, and security on an ongoing basis.

    Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves. - William Pitt
