You're absolutely right. I need another use case. The use case I gave is
the one for voters who are not visually or motor impaired. The use case
for a impaired voter would include steps like:

a.) The system says each candidate's name.
b.) The voter responds with an affirmative action when the selected
candidate's name is spoken.

The affirmative action could be a mechanical action or a verbal action.

The reason I'm heading along the technology independent line is to be able
to produce a a set of requirements that a state could use to evaluate
systems. OVC's system should meet these requirements. However any
implementation that meets the requirements should be acceptable.

I do have a question on what the use case would look like with the

After the ballot is printed, if the ballot is not correct, then what?
Does the voter go back to the poll workers to get another ballot, thus
restarting this use case. Do they notify the system that the ballot is
incorrect and they wish to alter it?
