That's really not fair. Pieces of paper, even if divided into smaller
sections (I like the perforation thing that Jim March had raised;
multiple pre-cut peformations are possible), have a physical
chain-of-custody and transparency to them. The lock on the ballot box
doesn't stop working because the paper put in it was torn along the
perforated line before it was placed in the box.
