Paper backup ballot eliminates recount costs;battery errors

I take my paper sample ballot, and my identification with me to the polls and there is no reason I can't turn in a signed written ballot along with the fallable machine counting ballot. I never knew a battery failure could add 100 votes to a candidate and would have never known this if this US Congress race was not close enough to be recounted. We cannot certify any counting machine with tax money and say for sure it is accurate. Paper backup is necessary if we are forced to pay for callibrated machines that the results read-out is controlled by a single technician.
