But Bev, the 'insiders' still game the system with falsely challenging voters, getting them knocked of ballot rolls, getting ballots disqualified (or made 'provisional', hell they might as well be disqualified!), covering ballot choices over with dots and re-making the choices, subverting legal recounts, the list goes on and on, and that's just Ohio! This is happening in Mexico now. What did Palast say, "The simplest, most idiot-proof ballot ever."?
Whatever the system is, the voters (each and every one of them) should be able to ascertain that their vote at least, was recorded as it was cast, and watch the ballots be counted. It should also be a 'published poll books' election, so that anyone can go see if someone who's ballot's been counted actually exists.
