How e-voting should be verified...

Slashdot: Dutch Securing E-voting After Being Pwned
...the Dutch government has ordered all software to be replaced, all hardware to be checked, unflashable firmware to be installed, and an iron seal to be placed on voting machines. A certification institute will double-check all measures, and on election day will cull random machines to check them for accuracy. The Dutch intelligence service AIVD has been approached to consult on the radio emissions issue. Furthermore, foreign observers will monitor the upcoming elections on November 22nd.
As the article mentioned, US elections are handled on the local level, so it wouldn't work here in the US. >_<

And considering monkeys can hack US voting machines. No, seriously, real, actual monkeys are able to hack Diebold voting machines... I'm gonna stick with paper ballots, thank you very much...
