TENdotZERO Opens Up Its E-Voting Code
TENdotZERO, a pioneer in standards-based solutions, today announced that it is opening up the code base for TdZ e-Vote, its e-Voting software, to the Open Source Community on a Dual Use License basis.
Simon Bain, CTO of TENdotZERO, said: “We have decided to release the TdZ e-Vote code under the GPL license, to provide a firm foundation for other developers and users to take a proven product and adapt it for their own requirements.”
The original software was developed alongside the software which helped manage a number of the UK local government pilot elections in 2003. This new version additionally provides cross-platform compatibility, enhanced security, and easy management.
