6. Computer generated paper ballots

I have no problem with the use of computers for voting. You can scroll through the choices, potentially accessing information for one to use in making final decisions. And I have no problem if the computer wants to check for "spoiled" ballots some how, such as double voting. It can also alert you to the fact that you haven't voted for something.

But when you're done, print out a "completed" ballot and hand that over to the vote counters. THOSE pieces of paper are the ballots that get counted. You check them over one last time prior to handing them in, because they are the ballot.
