I agree with Paper Ballots
The entire year of investigations into our voting process and it being hacked needs to be stopped. The analysis conducted by the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine has an approach. Sometimes it's just best to unplug. Paper Ballots and trusted senior citizen volunteers who have nothing to gain or lose from counting the ballots and love the work they do for their country is the way to go. Pitch the voting machines! No digital devices allowed and as a result, no interference from any hackers. Let's shut the digital wall on them by cutting the cord completely. How difficult can that be?

Seriously
If you have computer voting, it is all on an in-location isolated network - no internet!    Results are tabulated on a central system also isolated.  Results are then "voice phone" to central location for final count which is kept offline too and when done = VOILA - internet free election.

True, but
Then all the advocates of Brazillian rain forests and tree huggers will come down on de-forestation.
