Verifiable Voting

[NOTE: In a vote reversal, the Executive Committee of the GPNYS has now voted to NOT approve and post the previously-approved message AS WRITTEN; further discussion has ensued that may result in its modification, should a further vote require that. At issue is whether the GPNYS should accept ANY "lesser evil" modality for tabulating votes, when there still may be some problems with it. Although the original release stated concerns with OS techology, and stated clearly that full-paper ballots (hand-counted) is the ideal first choice, a final statement of GPNYS that may state preference for ONLY full-paper ballots is being reviewed at this time. Because the previously-posted statement HAS been duly voted down by the EC, it shall be removed until further notice.]
