Paper votes are even easier to fake. There isn't a perfect solution. We just have to trust technology, but it's understandable why some people don't. It's probably for the best, I don't really want to live in a country where people stop worrying about voting fraud/security. Better to be too vigilant than lax.

The voting machines are closed source and they store votes as doubles instead of integers. It should be open source and all votes should be integers.

You can still manipulate the system paper or not.

Honestly I don't know much about it. It's usually safe to assume that things are not being done in the best way possible though

Integers are whole numbers like 1,2,3

Doubles are numbers like 5.3, 7.23, 8.34

You always need a physical copy. If it ain't on paper it doesn't exist. Get that through your heads.

I remember this from highschool, but why is storing the votes as integers better than doubles? Is it just '1' vs '1.0'? Why does that matter?
