[snip discussion of possible parts]

I would also suggest a SHA or MD5 hash of the above.

However, I understand that several of the people on the list have been
studying these issues for a while. Is there a requirements
specification for the a) paper ballot, b) user interface? Even just
starting with the list of information that needs to be included on the
paper ballot would be good -- everything flows from that.

So on the paper ballot, the following information has been suggested for
Ballot type
Random number
Ballot sequence number
Voter ID (at least the XML representation suggested included this)
List of issues, with vote on each issue (incl abstentions)
Bar code of all (some?) of the previous
