Open Source for Voting?

I ran across this article in the New York Times recently.  It presents a fascinating juxtaposition of modern thinking on software security vulnerability approaches based on open source software with the very real need to ensure confidence in our electoral process. 

I have often made this argument myself in the corporate world but always in the context of saving money and increasing system resiliency.  I am not always successful but at least these are arguments that have some traction in most business organizations.

This spin on why community supported open source can be such a valuable resource to the democratic principles of society is both enlightening and encouraging.
