Should vote counting code be public?

A team of Australian researchers believe the code used to count votes in the federal election should be made public, after they found problems in the code of the 2012 NSW local government elections. Dr Vanessa Teague is a member of this team, and says it would be good for democracy, and good for the Electoral Commissions, to make election-related source code public before an election.

  1. I’ve been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I
    never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for
    me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful
    than ever before.
