    Yes, "This curious new technology called a 'printer' allows people to vote on electronic screens while at the same time printing a physical ballot! Amazing!"

    Which would be funny except that we're not even at that level of comprehension, nationally, yet.

      This is from neighboring Flagler County, Florida - they just bought Diebold touch screens to comply with HAVA disabled rules (and early FL deadline):

      (Supervisor of Elections) Border argued that the machines have an "electronic paper trail." Although they don't print out a vote immediately, they store the results in their electronic memory, allowing the voter information to be printed after all the ballots have been cast, she said.

      An "electronic paper trail"? Riiii-iiight.
