|Paper ballot over-votes|

I just wanted to note that with the eScan machine, which scans and records your paper ballot, an over-vote (which could be a little as a tiny pen mark in the wrong box) may cause your ballot to be rejected by the machine. What happens in that case is that the ballot is spit back out without recording anything, and you can take it back to the clerk to spoil that ballot and get a clean one to re-mark.
I don't know if the machine is always programmed that way or not, but I know that was the case in the March Primaries. Maybe someone can confirm that for us in this election.
My personal preference is for a paper ballot.
