Last month San Francisco issued a fast-tracked Request For Information ("RFI") to obtain insight, knowledge, and a reality check on the potential for adopting, adapting, and deploying a next generation voting system that is based on open source software technology. We responded to the RFI. However, in the process, we unintentionally misrepresented the status of OSI review of our OSS license, which we've now corrected. Read on about our licensing to ensure adoption of OSS election technology, and some comments about San Francisco's thought leadership in researching open source opportunities for electoral technology innovation.
