6. Scanners still better than touch screens. They are cheaper too. That said, nothing
is fool proof. You still have to have enough scanners to handle the crowds. And how hard is it to make ballots that can be read by most people - not hard.

The point is, with a paper ballot at least there is a record of voter intent. And the ballots can always be tallied by hand if the scanners fail. With a touch screen, no.
