The problem with this assertion is that the ballots print and read QR codes. They also print a readable version of the ballot. But if the two do not match, how can the voter tell, assuming they even bother to check?
Now, this would probably be fixable by hand counting the ballots. But I seem to recall not all Georgia counties actually did a hand recount. And many voters probably do not think to check their ballots. That's also far from the only way to cheat with a voting machine.
Also, Powell's suit doesn't rely solely on voting machine issues. It also alleges a number of other issues, each of which has the potential by itself to change the outcome.
Powell should have the chance to present her full case.
The rest of his post makes the good point that Republicans in Georgia were not necessarily confident of a Trump victory. That may be so. But it may also be so that the 2018 elections were tainted by similar issues and the polls were very demoralizing.
