Wisconsin Requires Verifiable Voting

Slashdot reports:

"Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle today signed legislation that 'will require the software of touch-screen voting machines used in elections to be open-source. Municipalities that use electronic voting machines are responsible for providing to the public, on request, the code used.'

Madison's Capital Times reports 'the bill requires that if a municipality uses an electronic voting system that consists of a voting machine, the machine must generate a complete paper ballot showing all votes cast by each elector that is visually verifiable by the elector before he or she leaves the machine.'' "
That'll put a crink in Diebold's vote rigging.

What is your state doing to protect your vote?
