I do not believe that we should be willing to buy or use voting systems where the source code and design is not open for public review. I think there are companies that would be willing to work in this model, particularly if the contract provided some long-term commitments. This is not Britney Spears we're talking about here–the integrity of our voting system is a fundamental component of our government.

eGovernment applications need to cost less, allow for rapid development, provide a user–friendly experience for constituents and offer enhanced security. Linux provides everything eGovernment initiatives need.

Interestingly, the most popular source of embedded Linux for future projects is “home grown (I build my own from GNU/Linux downloaded sources)”. That is, developers apparently prefer freely downloadable noncommercial sources–such as kernel.org, Debian or the uClinux project–over commercial embedded Linux distributions.
