We all need to have people after whom we can model our lives. We are not sure everybody knows Rop Gonggrijp but if you don’t you should. He is the one who will take a look at some cold, hard facts on voting computers on day 1 at 8:30 PM.

Of course, there are more scheduled events on voting machines, including appearance by Ulrich Wiesner.
