Microsoft, Dell, and Unisys are getting together to make sure that there are no more problems with dimpled, pregnant, or hanging Chad in upcoming elections. The three are developing an electronic voting system with Microsoft doing the software, Dell the hardware, and Unisys everything else.

The system Unisys would process voter registration, identify voters at polling places, and process and count votes, Unisys said.

Unisys also said it has already developed an electronic voting system for Brazil and Costa Rica, and has partnered with the state of Minnesota to develop a voting system that posts results directly onto the World Wide Web
