A tiny victory!

Just noticed that the article over on the Open Rights Group wiki concerning eVoting has been changed to remove a reference to pilots being funded by the Local Authorities (I'd appended a note to the effect that it wasn't being funded by the LAs).

Yes, Jason is correct that not all of the cost is being met by DCA funding, but 95% of it is, with the Local Authorities only having to meet marketing costs (the level of which is up to them), and additional staffing costs (which shouldn't be too high as automation is supposed to reduce staffing, not always the case I know, but certainly the goal).
