3. I don't have that list compiled right at this moment, but
one impact that remains relevant in modern times is the secret ballot, since it completely severs any connection between the voter and their ballot, makes TRUE auditing impossible, in that an "audit" at its core means going back to sources of information (like receipts in an IRS audit) and verifying those against the published summary (the tax return or the election results, respectively)
