    In Pima Co, AZ we get an "I voted" sticker.  I get no validation, that the machine counts my vote.

      At least we have paper ballots with those fill in the bubble forms.

      I think a paper trail of some sort is the safest way to protect the vote from electronic shenanigans.

        "confirmation number" like I do when I order something over the internet.  But you're right, at least there's a paper trail, even if no one follows it (RTI).
