22. Ok, thank you, that makes sense
I especially agree with this part: "in my opinion there's no excuse for that because this is the essence of the election and it should NOT be proprietary by any stretch of the imagination."

But I have another question, regarding the type of vote switching program that Clint Curtis did. Couldn't and shouldn't machines also be 100% audited to prevent that kind of vote switching program? I mean, if a machine can be audited to prevent a bad or fraudulent ballot definition problem, why can't it be audited at the same time to make sure that it doesn't contain code that will count votes meant for one candidate going to another candidate? -- which is essentially what Clint Curtis was asked to do.
