Finding a perfect voting machine is not easy. Many of us remember the controversy over the 2000 election. Each election since then has raised questions about the validity of results from one jurisdiction or another. Now an entirely new attempt has been made to present a voting machine that meets all the requirements voters want. It is simple to operate, preserves a permanent record available in print format, and is not easy to hack. This new machine will be unveiled at the Linux conference this week. A mock election will be held to demonstrate how the machine works. Undoubtedly reporters will tell us how the demonstration works and whether the machine seems to meet expectations. Even if you are not a technology buff, it will be worth watching what happens at theat Linux conference this week. This could be an important step forward for all of us.
