Are you saying in aggregate a paper and pencil would better reflect the free will of the people better than an open and verifiably secure electronic voting system under any condition?

particularly in countries where institutional check and balance are weak and insecurity prevails?

It is the ... verifiably secure... part that is not achievable in my opinion.

A regular voter needs to be able to carry out a such verification without the intervention of a specialist or the need to trust one.

For whatever such verification is, it has to be within the reach of understanding of the large mayority of the electorate, and paper and pencil is what can be expected.
