from http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2009/10/open-source

"LOS ANGELES — A group working to produce an open and transparent voting
system to replace current proprietary systems has published its first
batches of code for public review.

The Open Source Digital Voting Foundation http://osdv.org/about (OSDV)
announced the availability of source code for its prototype election
systemhttp://hhill.org/osdvWednesday night at a panel discussion
that included Mitch Kapor, creator of
Lotus 1-2-3 and co-founder of the Electronic Frontier Foundation;
California
Secretary of State Debra Bowen; Los A. County Registrar-Recorder
Dean
Logan; and Heather Smith, director of Rock the Vote."

And:

"The code currently available for download and
reviewhttp://github.com/trustthevoterepresents only a small part of
the total code and includes parts of an
online voter registration portal and tracking system, election
management
software and a vote tabulator. Prototype code for producing ballots has
been
completed and will be posted soon. Code for auditing is still being
designed.

The voting firmware and tabulator program are built on a minimized Linux
platform (a stripped down version of Sharp) and the election management
components are built with Ruby on Rails."
