67. Thanks Bill!
I'm still trying to ken this issue: "What it does NOT seem to point out is that the software is still required to produce the VVPATs."

OK, there's printer software drivers that records your vote to the paper register. Where's the problem? The voter can see that his/her paper results match his/her vote selection. If it didn't, I assume there's a method to void and recast. On audit the receipts ought to match the registers...if they don't, paper would obviously take precedence. So where is the potential for election fraud?

I certainly prefer paper ballot (works just fine up here in Maine) and not trying to be obtuse; there's probably something I'm not understanding about the VVPAT aspect of electronic voting.
