Open source software is defined by its complete transparency and lack of copyright. Our voting machine applies these ideas in an effort to make the process of electronic voting easier to implement. Our software makes this method of voting accessible to citizens who cannot use traditional voting machines due to a disability or special need. The construction and software of our device will be fully documented so that anyone can create their own inexpensive electronic voting device that complies with state and federal voting regulations.
