Diebold, one of the foremost providers of e-voting systems, posts this website (2)on its system, which also includes an online demonstration. The third website (3)archives articles from Wired that relate to e-voting, providing an overview of some of the key issues raised as scientists, the government and the public debate the decision to use e-voting. Of course, the U.S. is not the only country making this transition. For example, this fourth website (4) tracks current developments in e-voting in Ireland. In addition, the Australian government posts this website (5) with information on that country's e-voting system and even posts the open source code for the software. This recent article (6) by IEEE computer scientists reviews the technological difficulties involved in secure e-voting systems. Meanwhile, EFF (7) archives legal cases on e-voting from over the years on its website along with related materials. Finally, the First Society in Computing (8) reviews its activities and desire to "ensure the integrity and reliability of our nation's election process" on this last website.
