    Because of our vote-by-mail system a "paper ballot of record" is required by our state constitution.
    This should be the law of the land in the US Constitution along with the the citizens right to vote.
    Please! Please! stop using the word "receipt" when income to voting and ballots. A "PAPER BALLOT OF RECORD" is the only language that should be repeated.

      the only paper ballots of record that should be permissible anywhere should be made by the voter.
      Hand-count paper ballot and optical scanners allow for that.
