Hello:

A couple of things:

1. Q: Why use touch screen voting? A. ADA compliance and multiple
language capability. Also, it makes write in voting a little less
uncertain.
2. You seem to neglect voting registration and poll books. Not only do
votes needs to be accurately recorded and capable of independent audit but
only legitimate voters should vote. After looking over the Washington State
elections it looks like the Republican party has some legitimate gripes
about the difficulty of voter verification. My personal solution is free,
biometric ID's complying with national standards. If this is a National- ID
system, so be it. We've already all got social security numbers and privacy
is a quaint 19th century concept.
3. The person in charge of elections should be a civil servant appointed by
the judicial branch and confirmed by the legislature.
4. In light of what happened in Ohio, there needs to be an adequate supply
of voting machines and back up paper ballots.
