21. since you ask...
in accounting, it's generally crucial to be able to tie transactions to particular parties. In voting, it's generally crucial to prevent linking votes to voters. (Voting systems have other quirks -- for instance, they're supposed to be 'rolled out' a few times a year and be rock-solid reliable and flawlessly intuitive.)

Whether that has any real bearing on this discussion, I don't know. Wilms seems to think you said something about ATM receipts, but I think you probably meant something else, since those aren't used for auditing.
