74. In Nov 2000 I voted in Hawaii we used a machine that showed the options you selected then it printed
out on 8x11" standard printer paper which after checking the ballot to verify your vote was properly printed it was then taken to the scanner which scanned the ballot and if it passed the scan with no over or under votes it was accepted with a green light and automatically dropped in the ballot box for later recount if needed. If there was a problem it would kick back the ballot as unacceptable so you could correct the error. I thought it was a great system and if there was open software to see that their was no malicious code in it then this would be a great system as long as their were audits with a neutral observer making the calls as to which precincts to audit after the election so as to insure the vote was accurate. If we can't have that then lets go back to paper ballots period.
