Old-fashioned voting

We just voted for the city council. This was the first time that I had to color in a square with red pencil -- previous times I had to use a voting computer. But ever since a group of hackers demonstrated that those machines were insecure (by modifying the software so that it turned into a chess computer!), they haven't been used anymore.
There is something to be said for using the red pencil, re-folding the voting list (which is a pretty large piece of paper) and depositing it in the locked bus. Doing all those things gives a better sense of the gravity of excercising your civic right.
