And once again, the ballot-printer design is still vulnerable to delay-
and denial-of-service attacks, presentation attacks, and selection
attacks, all of which are far more difficult to wage against hand-filled
paper. Ballot printers are also vulnerable to out-and-out misrecording
attacks, since, as Selker has shown, "voter verification" is quite poor
at detecting errors.
