Apologies if this is a duplicate, but it merits discussion.

BBV is proposing using scanners that take digital pictures of
real ballots as they are being scanned, and making those
pictures available to the public ASAP on election day on

This would allow the public one way to conduct a full check
of an election. Some of the software for scanning the
ballots exists (VotoScope), so it seems feasible when
the infrastructure is in place to collect the CD ROMS/DVDs,
and to do their own counting.
