The principle that votes are cast in secret and tallied in public is
incompatible with voting systems being protected as trade secrets.
Besides paper trails, or even better paper ballots, voting systems
should be open to public inspection, including source codes and
design specifications. Public scrutiny helps Linux to be secure. It
is secrecy that invites errors or fraud.
