I sort of have a solution to the voting machine dilemma. The republicans, democrats and third party each bring a remote vote reader to each poling station. These machines are interconnected and installed in a private room and cloistered so the identity of the voters cannot be determined. As each vote is registered the votes are tallied separately on each machine. When a disparity between the machines is determined to have occurred, the voting is stopped until the reason for the disparity is corrected. If the disparity cannot be corrected then out come the paper ballots. All other suggestions for further improvements are requested.
