1. I still wouldn't know that my vote was recorded correctly.
Yes, I can see that the scan of my ballot matches my receipt, but that doesn't prove that my vote was actually recorded correctly.

And there's no way to do a hand recount to verify results. It all depends on software.

2. You have to start by wanting a fraud free voting system. The rest is easy.

3. NOPE, no good. Employer could force me to reveal my vote. PAPER BALLOT ONLY.
SORRY, not good, because an employer, ala Koch brother, can extort your job to read your vote.

Readable paper ballot, marred-stamped, random recounts or complete recounts.

Printable from the internet, but always reprintable at the balloting site with random requirements to be reprinted. Regular 8.5x11 or x14.

4. so on the "paper receipt" you can't tell who the person voted for?
so how do you recount it hand to eye?

What about the bar code - that isn't human readable?

Encryption? How is Encryption transparent?

How do I know that comparing my "receipt" to the vote on the website - ensures my
vote was counted as cast?

It would be trivial to do Diebold style with one database the voter sees and another that
the computer counts.

And the speaker insists that this can't be hacked.

Anyone who claims a computer system can't be hacked - is cracked.
