    You can't hack a paper ballot as easily. You have to forge signatures, this is much more difficult to do in large amounts, unfortunately Democrats have a lot of partisans willing to do the dirty work,  and federal judges to keep it under wraps.

    Because they're secure.  You can't hack a paper ballot.  Think of the accusations that Trump is lobbing about the election.  With paper ballots we can go back and recount them and see if the count is accurate or not.  With a machine tally all we can do is ask the machine to give us the tally again.

    It’s the safest way. At least, it inspires the most confidence.

    It gives the losers something to recount.

    Because people are idiots,  holding on to the past like it was somehow so much better than the present,  making our culture stagnate and sometimes even reverse.

    Because anything else is absurd.

    If the process of a democratic election is not completely transparent and verifiable to all interested parties from start to finish, the election is a farce. Electronic systems by their nature cannot be.

    As a back up for a recount.

    Those paper ballots proved the Dominion software didn't change any votes in Georgia and a few other states.
