At least one of the suggestions is missing above. There are 5 in all,
so far.

I *think* what you list as (2) is what I was calling "David" not what I
was calling "Ed"... but I'm not sure from the description. Unless you
really do mean "Ed", and you're trying to leave out my suggestion.

Let me try better short names:

(1) Pre-printed ballot stock (Ellen)
(2) Poll worker activation (Ed)
(3) Per-voter PIN (David)
(4) Per-party token (Alan)
(5) Smart cards (Arthur)

My short names leave out some of the details of how each suggestion
works, but I think these names capture the main aspect of each scheme.
