There is also this:

I volunteered under the "Like to Code" section - I figure I have 
complained enough that I should put up or shut up. Whether they will 
take a foreigner or not is another question.

Are you a technology professional interested in election integrity? A 
geek who believes every vote should be recorded as intended? A techie 
who stands for reliable and publicly verifiable election systems?

If so, TechWatch is for you!


TechWatch volunteers will receive training and participate in important 
non-partisan election monitoring activities, observing and documenting:

    * Logic & Accuracy testing of voting technology by election
      officials prior to Election Day
    * Poll Watching on Election Day (assigned to a single polling place
      or central election office)
    * Election Incidents on Election Day (on dispatch from an Election
      Incident Reporting system to polling places within a given county)

By applying technical expertise to mind the polls, TechWatch volunteers 
can chronicle election problems at this upcoming election and future 
elections, as well as for follow-on litigation and policymaking, in a 
way that most poll watchers cannot.

More than 750 technologists have already volunteered, but it will take 
thousands of TechWatch volunteers to cover priority states and key 
counties, starting with the Florida primary on August 31 and continuing 
through to the November 2 general election.
