I agree with you and Doug because logic and common sense needs to be
applied in any situation.

Look at Florida 2000 for instance where ballot spoilage was huge in many
opscan precincts. It may easily happen (and "has" happened in America's
history) that unethical persons may once in a while manage to throw away
or despoil permanent paper records.

I hope this is helpful.

Best,

Kathy
