An open source project, where IC/MV is simplified and secured to
work as a voting ballot box and a discussion how such thing
should work and could count the votes in a secure way. How it could
produce a bullet proof paper based confirmation of the unique vote
casted, which then could be hand or machine recounted in the unlikely
case a hacker had introduced a bias into the box.
Imagine to have a nationwide equal margin of error for all of
the U.S. counties' voting procedures, an inexpensive way for
each county to develop a nationwide standardized ballot.
It could work with a touch screen, with voice, with
pictures. So, even people who can't read, can't write, can't see
and can't walk and can't hold a pencil, could still vote.
Imagine each elementary school would be used as voting boot base,
the U.S. would vote on a Sunday and could use the school busses to
transport people to the voting boots at the schools. I bet the voter
turnout would increase to the 85% percent level and the results would
actually be representative of "something".
Does an open source project like that already exist ?
