The Slashdotters take on electronic voting machines and the need for a paper trail

This mess of commentary at Slashdot about how the legislature in Wisconsin has approved some paper trail requirement seems to say, more or less, that a paper trail is no panacea, and mostly worthless if the voter does not get to see the paper generated by his or her vote.

Also, it says that the vote machine companies are going to get rich selling ink for all those printers.
