Further, as I mentioned earlier, "voter verification" does not in any way impede (a) delay- or denial-of-service attacks; (b) attacks that move candidates about the ballot or drop them from it; (c) attacks that change the presentation of the ballot so as to emphasize or de-emphasize particular objects (remember what happened in Sarasota when some official omitted a header?); or (d) attacks that make it easier (or more difficult) to select a candidate. All of these attacks influence the voter's actual choices, so they do not create the inconsistency between the voter's ballot and her recollection that "voter verification" aims to detect.
The last sentence should read, "All of these attacks influence the voter's actual choices (or prevent her from voting), so they do not create the inconsistency between the voter's ballot and her recollection that "voter verification" aims to detect."
