R. A. Hettinga quotes Declan McCullagh:

 Bottom line:The technology is still in its prototype stage--but a bigger
obstacle may be whether notoriously conservative voting officials can be
convinced to try something new.

That's an interesting perspective, considering electronic voting already *is* "something new". A man with tinfoil inside his fez might wonder if this points to a greater conspiracy that hinges on the lack of a paper trail from the voting machines.

Speaking of which, this[1] Cringely column doesn't seem to have received much notice, even though it points out that the Diebold machines *already have a printer* built in. While it's probably not equipped to do Chaumian voter receipts, it could certainly do the old-fashioned human-readable type. That's a SMOP.
