This was a big concern of Marc Carrel's (Asst. SoS in CA). If someone
walks out of the precinct with an OVC system-printed ballot, there is
now a descrepancy between the electronic count and the paper count.
Is the electronic vote with missing paper ballot allowed? If so, what
prevents someone from adding a series of electronic votes that don't
have corresponding paper records?
