against: Zach Steinhardt, Jesse Allen, Tara Atkinson, Molly Vandevander    


On Monday, 12/7

3. A voter-verified paper trail should be required for any Federal election. (A VVPAT means there is a paper record of each vote that the voter can check and is then securely stored.)

Format: 12 minute opening statement, 5 minute rebuttal, second 4-5 minute rebuttal, 10 minute closing for each team. The "for" team starts and we alternate until the end when "against" team does their closing first. Pauses of 2 minutes or so before each rebuttal to prep.

Rebuttals can include questioning statements made in the other teams presentation, with facts to support, of course.

Opening and closing can be accompanied by powerpoint slides (bring on a usb memory stick).
