Evoting decertified in California

Well the Secretary of State for California, Debra Bowen, has, following the review of the state's evoting machines, decertified (or withdrawn approval and instigated re-approval conditioned on important changes, including full source code disclosure) the voting machines supplied by the four biggest evoting vendors in the US.

This is a pretty big deal for the evoting systems in the US and it will be really interesting to see how California copes with what comes next.

Update: The Washington Post has the story.
