3. This system has no transparency.
It is not possible for a human to verify a vote by direct observation. The only way to examine a ballot and determine for whom it votes is to use a computer algorithm to determine which candidates the checkmarks correspond to.

In other words, hand counts are impossible with this system, by design.

Fail.
