An electoral system that provides legal certainty is useless if it does not also provide moral certainty -- i.e. that the count delivered is as close as possible to the count of votes actually cast.
Touch-screen voting machines, as they are currently implemented do not provide a vote count that connot be questioned. They provide a vote count that cannot be *verified*. Those two distinctions could not be further apart wothout a good deal of malignant effort.
