I don't think this will work -- too many steps.

These are voters that just want to quickly verify their ballots.

At Target (store), you hold the barcoded item under a mounted scanner and
look at the readout to see the price instantly. It should be just as simple
for the voter -- except they put on headphones and listen to the selections
read back.
