Then you have pre-printed ballot forms plus computer printed ballot
forms. This approach is complex and doesn't avoid ballot stuffing.

Existing elections use optical-scan ballots and find them acceptable.
Print-on-demand may or may not be practical, but it would be possible;
otherwise keeping an adequate supply of ballots for each race is practical
today and should remain so.

Allowing voters to make their selections on optical-scan paper before
approaching the voting equipment would significantly reduce the time each voter
was at a voting station, and consequently increase per-station throughput
substantially, reducing the number of stations required.
