30. NO benefit?
That's ridiculous. You people act like it's impossible to have a voting system that works without a paper trail. How is it not of benefit if your catostophic prophecies go unfullfilled (most likely scenario), and county officials (that IS where this is handled, ya know) do a good job, Democrats get elected, etc........
People here forget that elections are handled at a very local level. Tampering would have to take place at the county level. Get to know your county officials if you want to be productively involved in this issue. Painting the worst case scenario all over the media accomplishes nothing. Action that will have real effect is working the polls, helping make sure ballots are intuitive and that voters are educated on how to use them ahead of time, etc.
