I like how I vote tbh.
Paper ballot which I hook into a little book contraption.
As I flip through the book which gives me options to vote I poke a pen/stamp into a hole to mark my selection.
When I'm done I unhook it and put it in a machine which sucks my ballot into a box.
1.) I'm advocating for uniform ballot templates which are easy to read, informative, and tracable.
2.) No, see above.
For example; whatever your method - filling in dots, or connecting lines, or whatever - of ballots can lead to cofusion.
The easiest interface would be a digital touch screen which "builds" the ballot response for you, then prints out a unqiuely signed copied which is then scanned in by the vote-tabular machines.
In the case of absentee ballots, a blank form (with unqiueness) would be mailed and scanned on return.
Simple, uniform template.
Everyone votes the same.
