  The Open Vote Foundation
  presented by: Scott Ritchie, Director

    The Open Vote Foundation is an organization dedicated to the
    development and implementation of open, secure standards for
    electronic voting machines.  Based in California, the foundation's
    chief focus is the development of the Open Vote Project, is an open
    source effort to develop free software for Direct Recording Electronic
    (DRE) voting machines.

    Based on the Australian System, where source code is freely
    published for public review, the Open Vote Project's initial goals are
    to make a touchscreen voting system fully compatible with California
    election law, including a voter verifiable receipt and easy access for
    the disabled.  Once accomplished, the project will then expand into a
    global standard for secure, reliable, and full featured voting machine
    software, including features such as multi-lingual ballots,
    vote-anywhere technology, and onsite voter registration.
