A Practical Voting Scheme with Receipts?

David Chaum introduced Visual Voting scheme in which a voter obtains a paper receipt from a voting machine. This receipt can be used to verify that his vote was counted in the final tally, but cannot be used for vote selling. The Chaumís system requires sophisticated printers. We propose a complete design of a voting system that preserves advantages of the Chaumís scheme, but eliminates the use of special printers.
