Whoops, you aren't supposed to fill your ballot out like that. I remember last election they were talking about how the machines were designed to detect a thin line between the arrows, not a full fill. I also remember thinking it's just a stupid then as it is now.

Well, if you read the comments, you'll notice another election official said as long as you don't bleed through, the machines will read it. I remember there were all sorts different responses to they'd have to count it by hand, or blah blah blah. It's the hanging chad thing all over again.

Actually, another thing I'm worried about, is that on the SCCvote.org site, they mentioned that they will throw out mail in ballots where the signature doesn't match. When I first got a early vote ballot, they said they had some problems because my signatures didn't match. I'm worried that somebody threw my vote out cause it didn't look like it came from me. I might just try to vote in person next time.

Oh yeah, that's also how I used to fill out my ballots. I my, why isn't MORE ink safer? I wonder if it's a smearing issue with rollers or something.
