"In tender documents released last week, the state revealed it
would expand its use of the machines. About one hundred kiosks will
be deployed to early voting centres (including mobile facilities)
around the state as well as in the United Kingdom.
"According to the tender documentation, the machines will
consist of one in-built 19 LCD touch-screen, one PC with an
Ethernet network port, and an in-built USB smartcard reader. The
machine must be able to run Linux, as the commission has requested
Linux drivers for the components."
