Answer to voter confidence?
Voting machine with paper trail. This might be a good one.

1. The article says it was certified in Ohio
This is not true. Wish it was.

We still need to just leave the ballot in a box and have it used as the "official" ballot for counting, recounting and auditing. Taking it home and checking back later, does not allow for this.

But glad to see others are working on the problem and not just the MIC and Friends.

2. Nope - that paper trail is a "receipt" that goes to the voter
Unless I'm missing something, you still have nothing to recount or audit. No go from the get go.
