13. It should be available, perhaps by number
The recount in the open should be a no-brainer; it should be as open as possible; if there is some concern about privacy perhaps they can give out numbers to each ballot and they can find a way of verifying it that could enable each voter to check their number but then they would have to make sure that they aren't duplicated and only the voter knows the number.

Ideally if no one had to worry about retaliation then there would be no need for secrecy; until then it should be as open as possible and voting machines shouldn't have any rights to "proprietary" secrecy that is controlled by voting machine manufacturers with political connections.
