I don't know about paper receipts

If everyone received a paper receipt, it would seem to me that the only way to verify that the machine tally matched the paper receipts would be to then collect everyone's receipts and add them up manually. What's to prevent "correct" votes but in machines where the candidate's tally starts not with a zero but either a negative or positive number. There are numerous ways to rig computers, at different stages of the process.

I thought this was a great video: "Hacking Democracy," especially the demonstration at the end, from about 1:06:00 on (after Diebold executives said that it's not possible to alter the vote).
