We accept that in the manual counting can be mistakes, because we assigning
it to one or plus person.
The machine can not be wrong, or it works or it doesn't work.
  We need to reassure the voters that the machine works even if there is a
failure or if there is an attempt to alter the vote.
In practice, the voter must feel that the vote that expressed " is its vote
and not the vote of the machine."
My search technology to achieve this result.
