4. Yes. You missed something.
The Help America Vote Act mandated that all precincts have disabled accessible voting machines - then then republican owned voting machine manufacturers offered DREs as the optimal solution. And nothing else.

Voters cas request a copy - of the precinct totals, not of individual votes.

Open Source makes it easy to verify that there aren't any vote-flipping subroutines built into the tabulators.

This sounds like a very good solution to me. The primary element is the vote verification by an unbiased board of vote counters - the individuals on the board can be as biased as they like, but the triple checking by boardmembers of different parties guarantees that no one will be able to mess with the vote count.
