8. The evidence is in the method chosen
There is no point to electronic voting OTHER than the opportunities it creates for fraud.

It doesn't create a cost savings, these machines and their maintenance is expensive.

It doesn't enhance the integrity of the process, in fact it does quite the opposite by eliminating the paper trail.

So why do electronic voting at all? Until and unless someone advances a reason that is sufficient to overcome the two negatives listed above, the only reasonable assumption is that it is to enable fraud, full stop.
