Actually, OVC already does this:

(1) Voter takes compact digital camera into voting booth
(2) Voter takes picture of paper ballot before leaving booth

(3a) Voter walks over to ballot box and deposits ballot ; or
(3b) Voter walks to poll worker and says "this is a spoiled ballot"
(and presumably then casts a new one)

(4) Voter shows Coercer the snapshot

I don't (yet) see any particular benefit in handing out the digital
cameras to the voters ourselves (or anything equivalent) :-).

Yours, David...
