"This means voting machines with voter-verified paper audit trails..."

I've attended "audits" of VVPATs. They merely verify that the printer still worked as expected. Nothing more.

This turf has been hashed and rehashed. The Election Verification Network (academics, administrators, activists) have covered this many times. Auditing electronically mediated elections is impractical and adds little more certainty in the results.

No, crypto voting doesn't help.
