Well done.  Letter is well written

Few minor points mostly pedantic

Would suggest changing the word "posited" to "theorised" 
Would suggest changing the word "contention" to "congestion" or "delay" 
In the sentence "even more e-voting machine" would suggest you remove the word "even".

One other thing is the display of the letters looks strange - (e.g letters r, o and u are at different heights) and it's a little disconcerting when reading the letter not sure if this is effect of what generated PDF as I haven't seen this before

Subject: [E-voting] DRAFT: letter to the Special Group on Public ServiceNumbers and Expenditure Programme

I have a draft letter to the Special Group on Public Service Numbers and Expenditure Programme (an bord snip) up at;


Comments Welcome :-) Thanks go the Mags, Cian and Noirin for looking already and making good changes.

The aims are really threefold;

1. To supply any non-hacks on the committee with some ammunition if they come against any notion that the current machines are in some way usable.

2. To maybe prompt an examination of the costings issues of actually running an election, or what using the machines would entail.

3. To get some media attention, to keep a small bit of heat on - the letter an be distributed attached to a press release too.

I'm missing a reference for the Contract date, I'm pretty sure it was signed on December 19th 2003, but I need to find a concrete reference for it.

I also need to get an address for the board, though I can send it to the members individually and the dept of an Taoiseach.
