Here we are again opening our elections system to a vendor and software that has not been tested by any test lab or certified to be used on any voting system. Aspen Colorado is going to hold a mock election using two different modes of Instant Runoff Voting (IRV). In order to do this with the voting machines they will be using the city has hired “True Ballot” to write the software to count the ballots on the optical scan machines in use by the city. Yes this is a mock election. But who expects that once a decision on which IRV system will be used the new software will be removed from the machines and never used until it has been certified for use on those machines....
