On the other hand, given the ready availability of cellphones with digital
cameras, even in a paper-based system you can now make your own voting
receipt while you're still in the voting booth.  Not clear what can be done
about this... perhaps you'll have to hand in your cellphone when voting, and
go through an X-ray system to prove you don't have it.
