Voting machine efforts from elsewhere

I am not happy with the way the voting machine saga has come down the pike in Allegheny County as well as at the Federal level. We saw this unfold years ago. It stinks.

From the get-go, I was in favor, and still am in favor, of OPEN SOURCE Voting Machines. That is the golden key.
EVM2003: "A worldwide group of scientists, engineers, political scientists, legal scholars, and voting-rights activists are working on developing a PC based voting machines that will be easier to use, more secure, cheaper, and provide greater democratic transparency than commercially available voting machines. All EVM2003 voting stations produce a voter-verifiable paper ballot"
Plus, even without an open-source solution, I still want to have an Allegheny County Tiger Team to work over those (any and all) voting machines.
