Despite all the hoopla, the real reason machines are being pushed is so the vote is available the instant the polls close—we can't keep CNN waiting, now can we?
Canada manages to do it on paper ballots quite well, thank you.

Given the Canadian example, it's perfectly reasonable for every state to use paper ballots, including California, the most populous.
