New Zealand News - Americans need to question their style of democracy
: "In contrast [to the US], Australia has designed a system that addresses and eases these concerns. With a transparency that should be the gold standard by which all democracies conduct themselves, it made the software running its electoral system completely open to public scrutiny. Although designed by a private company, drafts as well as the finished software code were posted on the internet for all to see and evaluate. This ruins one American election official's comment that no country in the world has the rigorous certification and testing standards used in the US. " 10:39:26 AM
