voting with felt pen vs regular pen

In the past, I've voted in MN with a regular pen.

Today, my booth had a felt pen. The ink showed on the other side of the page.

I hope there isn't a stray-mark problem.

2. PEN AND PAPER VOTER

 

I used a regular ink pen and paper when I voted in NORCAL. The handy paper makes recounting a vote so easy. There are no instant vote reporting until the next morning when all the paper is collected and votes counted.

4. My pen was a regular ink pen.

All the pens at my polling place were ink pens, not felt. But if there was a problem the scantron would have alerted you when you fed it in.
