Submission + - Open Source Alternative for Closed Voting Machines (

Rooked_One writes: Listening to NPR, I heard an interview about a voting program called PVOTE that is written in Python and only 500 lines long. From the article : "Pvote is not a complete voting system. It is just the software program that interacts with the voter. Other necessary functions, such as voter registration, ballot preparation, and canvassing, are not part of Pvote. It is especially important that the voter interaction be correct because it is the only part of an election that must take place in private, whereas all other parts of an election can and should be subjected to public oversight and verification.
