Have a look at www.blackboxvoting.org - new items re: optical scanning.
Finnish computer expert Harri Hursti has apparently developed some new
methodology using existing optical scanners which produce a digital
image. (This doesn't relate to older scanners or ones that use infrared
technology.) Apparently he's developed open source software. In the
USA a scanned image of a ballot is considered to be a public record so
at least in theory people should be able to get a copy of all the ballot
images, and count them for themselves, with or without software.
Could this be of interest here? Snag--I don't think we have any similar
rules here relating to /images/ of ballots as public records.
