I'm having a hard time figuring out what we want!

What part of the definition of "ballot" isn't sufficient? The OVC
system is basically a complicated ballot printer that also allows for
the efficiency of digital technology with respect to quick counting
(USB dongle, etc.). So, we need to have a clear illustration of the
qualities of an OVC system-printed ballot vs. everything else. In the
end, it should be the same as an "official paper ballot" with the
exception that an elections system tranlated the intent of the voter
(via touchscreen) to markings on a piece of paper (via electronic
signals and a printer).
