Bottom line is this, once you have voted, you have no real way to authenticate that your vote was actually counted, especially using a computer, I see problems as many of you others might be able to identify everyday utilizing touch screen ATM machines.
I have seen where when you press an amount, say 20$ and it will pick 40$ the or the amount above where you press and it sometimes takes several presses to register your pick, this is especially true in a mall, so it is easy to imagine this type of glitch using a touch screen voting machine, even if calibrated this margin of error is unacceptable to me.
