14. What you need to do is to find out your state's policy for redoing machine rejects
In WA state, poll voters just turn in a ballot that won't read. It is torn mostly in half and put in a special bag to be sent in separately. The voter is then issued a new ballot. With centrally scanned absentee ballots, teams of duplicators perform the same function. These teams are observed by paid observers from Dem and Repub parties. All duplication data is hand-entered into a bound notebook.

In 2007 we had a really hellish year because a large portion of the ballots were printed with the registration just off enough to cause machine rejection.
