I have suggested "CRE" for DRE with printer--stands for Conditionally
Recorded Electronic voting machine. Actually, CRE may be applicable for the
OVC system as well. You have a electronic ballot image that conditionally
represents your ballot. The conditions depend on the rules surrounding the
use of the paper.
