Booting off Read Only support like a CD Rom, that has been pressed and
physically/visually signed ?
At the end of boot, the machine, within a transparent cell, ejects the
CD so every voter can see the disk.
Disks are then collected at the end of the poll for further
investigation in case of litigation.
Data are collected into one / two USB keys that are physically removed
from each machine. Put into separate containers for later count.
Any citizen can visually follow the process of counting.
Same process for counting machine that processes the USB keys.
Just my 2 eurocents.
