It looks like the standards were written for the Avante system.

I don't understand the rationale for not letting the voter touch the
paper ballot. Also, how do you ensure that the earlier paper audit
trails are not visible to the next voter.

If the requirement for encasing the ballot so the voter does not
touch it were removed, then that would be better for the OVC approach
in California.

Best regards,
Arthur
