Need some help with this but my initial estimates are $150 K for software and 2 year maintenance, four (4) programmers over 12 months @ $60 K each plus two Administrators over 1.5 year @ $100 K each. We’ll need good voting software (none political as I heard they have accessible back doors) that can be tweaked to meet our needs. An encryption software package; currently thinking Trusted Pair is impressive but not an encryption expert plus email, blogging and admin. That’s $510 K +/- $100 K total which is only about $10.00 from 55,000 people or $100.00 from 5,500 or $1000.00 from 550 people. It’s a pile of money for an experiment but it has all been done before, just not in one package. The package however is marketable as well for a variety of situations. I came up with the package originally for a consumer group but when I applied it to this I almost fell out of my chair.
