Calif. voting requirements
Sacramento County, Calif., wants a new voting system that will meet the state's certification requirements. The system also must meet federal and state standards, including accessibility for disabled voters and foreign language requirements. The system also must qualify for state and federal funding; be used in polling places, in early voting and by absentee voters; and use current technology. It should also produce reports, allow for an independent recount and integrate with the system currently used by the county. The project is expected to be worth $20 million. A request for proposals is expected March 2004.
