28. Absolute waste of time
I don't care if the damn machine prints a gold-embossed receipt to take home, match against a public list to "verify" my vote, and cherish forever after. It still doesn't address the proprietary software used to tabulate the votes behind the scenes.

Gimme a rock and a chisel and I'll give you my vote, Diebold!!
