10. They do here too (it's a legal sized file folder, but whatever)
but they don't really conceal the machines going into the scanner, only hide them as one moves about the polling place.

The machines here (we have ES&S, I'm sure others are different) are set up in such a way that pretty much the whole up-facing side of the ballot is exposed during the scan- I make a point of not looking and I've still seen a lot of people's supposedly secret ballots as a poll worker, because there's really no way to help a person who's having difficulty feed their ballot into the scanner without seeing their ballot.
