20. Some electronic, some still called in
But you can compare the results from the machine (printed tape) at the end of the day to what is shown in the final tally at the tabulator. Dane County usually gets theirs posted online throughout the election evening - very quick. If there are observers at the precincts, recording what is shown on the printout tapes, and then comparing to what is posted for the central tabulator, you can verify that those numbers haven't been changed.

I'm not saying that fraud doesn't occur - that's why I've spent days helping with verification after elections. With our system, and paper ballots, we at least have a way to recount if necessary.
