<dialogue about approval and detection of tampering>
Another thought occurred to me. With either Approval or ranking, it
is easy enough to "un-vote" for a candidate by simply drawing a line
through all of the candidate's fill-in spots.
A machine reader can be set to count multiple ranks or excessive
ink as lowest rank or non-approved.
This prevents tampering via overvotes and makes the intention clear if
the ballot is read by hand. And it takes mere moments to strike out
all non-preferred candidates. Zip, zip, zip, and you're done.
