"First VVPT"

Broward County FL. Hundreds of undervotes in single-contest
election, with margin of 12 votes. Paper would help to catch
such errors.

Verifiable paper record would eliminate legal challenges.

Accessibility: Straightforward for [product] to provide readback
capability. [Not on separate system]

Large undervotes with bad UI design. 12% undervote for Senator in
LA on DREs.

"Lowest-cost system."

CT SOS: 92% voter satisfaction with Avante system. Sacramento,
96.5% confidence.

Many contentious recounts on paperless DREs. These costs outweigh
any possible savings for leaving out paper. FL admits that DREs
eleminate meaningful recounts.
