2/ Notes:

Item 1: it is critical to specify HAND marked bc machine-marked (often barcpded) paper ballots are hackable. The only exception should be for people who are unable to hand mark their ballots.
3/ Item 2: It is critical to maintain a transparent chain of custody as to both the paper ballots and the election equipment Iif any). This requires publication of chain of custody records & (perhaps) video surveillance.

The point of items 6 and 7 is to allow the public to compare what's reported at the precincts with what is reported by the county or state's reporting system. Believe it or not, some jurisdictions don't even conduct this "reconciliation" themselves. 1/
If no one conducts that reconciliation, then the reported totals, which may have been hacked, become the official results. Note that Russia reportedly hacked the reporting system in Ukraine in 2014. 2/
