Subject: RE: [election-services] Twitter and Elections / Action Groups / Partyapparatus and Open Sourced Democracy

Actually the reverse is true!  The EML 530 is something the States themselves can do independently of the vendors!
California actually build theirs out of the database they maintain of all the precinct level votes cast and reported to them by the various vendors kit.
While not ideal for strict auditing purposes - it does provide for statistical and trend analysis at a minimum - and may have other applicabilities - subject to States supporting requests for additional gradularity in what is reported statistically.
Thanks, DW

I'll have to find time to look at 530 and see if it lends itself well
to work like post-election auditing (where we need to be able to do
various kinds of math on unofficial totals for complicated (or simple)
sample selection, etc.). Obviously, it's not much good unless it makes
it into the vendors' products and then those products get certified
(which is something few of us have control over).
