I definitely would stick close to what Kevin Shelley used at the very
beginning of the AVVPAT standards document... where the "electronic
record" is intended to serve as the "official record" of the vote (or
individual's vote).

My definition is here:

----
(b) "Direct recording electronic voting system" means a voting system
that includes all of the following:
(1) A device or system that does not require the voter to record his
or her vote directly onto a tangible ballot.
(2) A device or system where an electronic record of an individual's
vote is considered the official record.
