Open Voting Consortium has been asked to provide the voting system for the LinuxWorld [1] conference August 5-7, 2008 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

The People's Choice Award for Best Product at LinuxWorld 2008 will be among the contests on the ballot. Conference organizers with World Expo say they "will send out a press release [2][1] about the area pre-show, and release and promote the result of the ballot, during and after the event."

This plebiscite will include several other issues of interest to conference attendees, including preferences in the race for US President.

With 7,500 voters expected to cast ballots on the system, it will be the largest demonstration so far of the OVC voting system.
