There needs to be mechanism to block "a bunch of made-up votes". Someone
could also make up fake punch-cards. Same issue, same solution.

More important is the issue of *disappearing* votes. Voter gets a
receipt, yes, but how can you guarantee that her vote (bar code or
otherwise) has actually been counted?
