He appears to be referring to things like this:
http://www.votehere.com/vhti.php . I've read the tech paper on it, and it's
very difficult going for non-cryptographers. It's still susceptible to
presentation attacks (e.g., ballot reordering, dropping candidates from the
ballot, making it easier to vote for certain candidates, etc.) I am also not
quite sure what it really permits a voter to verify. I really need to read the
paper again.
