    a simpler approach is this.

    if a state goes 10% over budget, then it must either come up with the savings, or an automatic, across the board cut kicks in.

    and if not, why not?

    Your project sounds so interesting, one that would harness the expertise of the interested public. I imagine that your harnessing politics to fix politics approach will confront problems of cronyism and special interests, and I look forward to learning of ways in which your proposal can mute those problems. Election administration seems particularly vulnerable to both, at least in terms of the purchase of evoting systems. Given your terrific work, I know that you reach far beyond evoting systems and so I really look forward to hearing more about your project. Danielle
