4. I meant "no paper trail at all." I chose the phrase carefully. It includes paper ballots
with or without real status as ballots, readable and unreadable receipts, or any other hardcopy of the vote. In half the systems there is NOTHING--no paper trail at all. The votes are completely unverifiable and unverified, and are merely whatever the private parties who wrote the code in the electronic innards told the code to do. There is no way to see that happening, or to compare it to anything else.

I did not mean to use the phrase "paper trail" loosely. I agree with you. EVERY vote should have a real paper ballot, and EVERY vote should be counted by human beings in view of the public.
