Today I have an excellent example of how important it is, and sometimes difficult, to maintain clarity around the technology that we’re building in the TrustTheVote project, and what we are (and are not) doing in OSDV generally. This particular example illustrates how voting technology is already bedeviled by jargon, inconsistent terminology, and procedural confusion — so that terminology and explanation that work for one group of people just don’t work elsewhere.
I’m blogging live from the National Association of State Elections Directors Conference, Day-2. And you can follow us Twittering live from the conference too (@osdv). A quick comment here; perhaps more as the Day progresses.
