Hi Everyone,

I've transferred my question to the Non-tech list.

I can appreciate the sentiment that "this would never have happened if they
were using an iSeries...", and fair enough. However, technical issues
aside, aren't you guys, as Americans, (and I'm asking as a non-American),
completely horrified by the potential abuse of democratic process?

I was sent this by a journalist friend of mine (see attached text file). It
talks about the Georgia elction, but also talks about a Republican Senator
Chuck Hegel from Nebraska, who also apparently won in an upset, but who
also happens to be a part owner of the company that has exlcusive control
of voting machines in Nebraska.

(See attached file: UNTITLED.TXT)

I believe someone in another mail made a comment about the technologically
challenged country over the pond where they still mark bits of paper with
crosses? Well I say thank God we're still technologically challenged over
the other side of the Pacific as well !

Thanks

I am trying to see how this situation could be turned this into a business
opportunity for the iSeries.  I can't picture a viable iSeries solution.

Mechanical voting machines offered some interesting opportunities too. <g>
