Yes, the Irish Computing Society (www.ics.ie)

Yes. Originally, one of their executives came out with a press release
in favour of it, or well - seemingly in favour of it, it was so poorly
worded a release it was hard to tell. Then, the incenssed membership
rebelled, and a speal Evoting group was formed within the ICS. They made
a submission to the Commission on Electronic Voting, and came out very
strongly in favour of a mandatory VVAT.
