Nashville businessman Athan Gibbs had a dream: Count every vote. Athan Gibbs had a standard: You should be able to verify your vote like you can verify how much money you have in the bank. Athan Gibbs had a question: Why, if you're an ATM manufacturer, would you make a machine that doesn't provide a paper trail and can't be audited? Athan Gibbs had an idea: Make a voting machine where the voter has an opportunity to verify that their vote has been received , recorded and counted. This is the story of Athan Gibbs' quintessential dream - and its tragic conclusion.
