In my voting district in Williamson County, Tennessee, you show an approved state-issued photo ID; get a long, blank piece of paper; the helper person does something that tells the touch-screen computer/voting system (didn't notice the maker) which specific ballot should show up on the screen; you insert your piece of paper; make your choices (preferably, anyone but a Democrat); it prints out your choices onto that piece of paper; you take that to another machine manned by another helper; and, finally, insert it into that tabulating machine.

It's a combination of paper and electronic, so cheating can still happen on the electronic end, unfortunately.
