Don't think this would work.

For election verification purposes, should you complain that your 
specific vote was not recorded properly, a third party would need to 
be able to verify that the receipt you gave them was valid.

I was also interested in attempting to verify the information you 
provided in an earlier message:

   Besides the outright scandals there are the suspicious results:
   For example, three Republican candidates in three separate elections
   counted by machines supplied by the same company with tight Republican
   connections win by the exact same margin of votes, some improbable number
   like 10,800.

I have checked hightowers lowdown...is the the article you grabbed 
that information from:


but was unable to read the entire article as I am uncertain whether I 
want to subscribe.

Does anyone happen to have URLs to newspaper reports on these 
incidents and numbers?
