Can we get the release? Any party people got a copy of it yet?
It has plans for an independent panel to verify the secrecy and accuracy of
the system, the introduction of primary legislation to apply electronic
voting to non-DÃ¡il elections, and more explicit arrangements to allow
abstentions to be registered.
If that's right then we have a nice angle - govt to sets up panel and tells
it what verdict to reach!
