The printed copy used for voter verification can indeed list
just the selected candidates and selected positions on issues.
This compacts all but ranked-preference votes, where you end
up listing all the candidates selected, in rank order.

Note that this printed ballot is legally the ballot if it is
what the user verifies and drops in a ballot box. Paper ballots
listing only the selected candidates and not all candidates are
still ballots! See my web site on the history of voting for
examples
