We describe in detail dispute resolution problems with cryptographic voting systems that do not produce a paper record of the unencrypted vote. With these in mind, we describe the design and use of Audiotegrity-a cryptographic voting protocol and corresponding voting system with some of the accessibility benefits of fully-electronic voting systems and some of the dispute resolution properties of paper-ballotbased systems. We also describe subtle issues with coercion-resistance if accessible
