I agree.  The paper printout may be unconnected to fraudulent tally
numbers produced later for publication.  This is better than the literal
nothing produced at present.

There is a small chance many voters could use there receipts to counter
fraudulent tally in low-vote ward.

Quite true.  But given the fact that we don't have that ability *now*,
exactly is the difference?  Other than streamlining and centralizing the

present distributed corruption?
