I do agree with this answer.
Logically it should be written as
Once each vote and (a) piece of paper are burned
However the article a is missing making piece of paper irrelevant. Hence it should be
Once each vote and pieces of paper are burned

Just a friendly reminder to please include the source whenever you post a new GMAT question!

I could be wrong, but this one really doesn't seem like a real GMAT question, and I think the correct answer leaves room for debate. Unless somebody can pin this down to a credible source, I don't think that it's worth spending any of your valuable study time on it.
