I know... I took Latin too. But in English the phrase comes over with
a less generic meaning. Actually, as well as archeology and geology,
the term is used in forensics. But none of those are areas we want to
insinuate ("we found the ballot lodged in his left ventricle...").

What don't we just call the ballot itself a "Printed Summary Ballot"
(as Arthur likes, and just an adjective order off from your
suggestion). And the voting station that makes one a
"Computer-Assisted Ballot [Printing|Marking] Device"
