The most vexing problem I see is that even most advocates of paper ballots don't recognize the problems with the security of the tallying system, and don't demand auditable reports. We even have laws to require audits of elections (one of which I helped pass in Colorado), but the equipment doesn't produce any sort of report that can be meaningfully audited by hand counts of paper ballots.
