E-voting gets bitch-slapped in Calfornia


Australia have legalised and are trialing E-Voting

"Australia has a major election every two years. The votes are cast and counted by hand. Results are available by midnight."

Sorry Glen but e-voting has been legalised in Australia and is being piloted. The article I read a whle ago said that the source code would be open but there would be no paper receipts as outined in the law passed.

I don't think most Australians even know about it.

Just did a quick search and found a 2004 article at


It seems Australia is having difficulties with evoting manufacturers who want source code to be proprietry.

I've heard Its creeping into the UK also.
