This does something important: it will make sure the right ballots are in the precinct's ballot box. It does not make sure that, later, the votes are counted at a central authority. My gut feeling is that we will solve both issues (ballots are in the ballot box, and the ballots are counted) with another plan and this procedure will be redundant.
