Check-in if you were able to use paper ballots

This was my first time voting in this area so I was surprised to see them. You had to fill the dots in with a sharpie no less! When I was in VA Beach it was electronic and I had the "privilege" to be in line behind Pat Robertson one time, lucky me!

14. Here (Minnesota). We fill in little ovals with a black pen on a paper ballot.

The ballot is then fed into a scanner to be counted, and the paper ballots are preserved if a recount is needed. It's also my understanding that the scanners are not connected to the internet. I have never voted any other way, except for a very long time ago when they had those voting booths with the little levers.

16. Paper/scanner done early. But,

as the polls closed (indiana) I received a distressed text from the party - as they were running out of paper ballots in some of the districts and were looking for emergency volunteers to go to the polls and try to keep people waiting in line rather than giving up and going home (and not voting.)

ETA just learned they are keeping the polls open until 7:00pm in Monroe County, and Sen. Donnelly sent a tweet reminding voters that if they are in line at 6:00 - they can still vote - along with the Emergency Vote # if one is turned away/told otherwise.

41. Back in the olden days...

We would make copies of a blank ballot, have people vote on those, and then when a new batch of ballots arrived from the county, teams of poll workers would remake ballots to match the copied ballots and send those through the scanner.

I donít know if thatís done anymore.

49. In this era of concern for voter fraud (by theGOP) I doubt it would be done.

On the plus size - there has been a huge surge in early voting. So if despite that - the polls are running out of ballots - it suggests an overall large turnout. This is a solid blue dot in Indiana - so I don't think the running out of ballots is trickery.

No matter what method you use, I think there's always going to be a nagging voice of uncertainty as to whether my vote was actually counted.

That's just human nature, I suppose. At a certain point, you just have to go off on blind faith.

And instead of the little circles, there were rectangles so it took even longer to sufficiently fill them in. AND my ballot was longer than the little voting station table. Somehow I successfully completed the process.

No sharpie here, just a ballpoint. You feed it into the machine yourself when you are done, and if it accepts, it adds your vote to the total for the machine. No fuss, no muss, no bother.

64. Paper ballots here in Wa state. Either black or blue pen and

you can mail it or put into a drop box. I dropped mine off at the ballot box approximately half an hour ago. There was some deep digging I had to do on some of the people in my county and city so it took me longer than I wanted. What matters is that it is in the proper place now.

79. Paper here in Michigan...

But Iíve never used a sharpie to mark the ballot this was the first time for that used ballpoints before. Many of us at the polling place noticed that it bled through to the other side. They said it was ok cuz the marks donít line up so it was ok

86. In my Nebraska county, Dawes, we

all voted by mail with paper ballots about a week ago.

Registered voters were mailed their ballots, and the return envelopes were postage paid, so I handed mr. froggy's and mine to our mailman the next day.

88. We complete the arrows on 8 pages (vote by mail) in San Francisco.

The voting guide is bigger than some phone books. Anyway, we can mail it in, put it in designated ballot boxes in/around municipal buildings, or drop them in the box at our polling place.

104. Paper Ballot in my township, Lincoln County, WI

Since moving here 17 years ago (from the Chicago area), we've always had a paper ballot - scanned by machine.

I was there at about 10am (voter #67) and am very anxious to see the total # of voters this time around. Usually, I walk in and am the only one in there besides the voting officials.

Today, both booths (2 voter booths, woo-hoo!! ) were occupied and I was the second in line with 3 people behind me. There weren't this many people voting in 2016!!!

Hope to God they were all voting straight Dem like I did. However, there's LOTS of NRA freaks up here, but hopefully my vote will help keep 'Snot' Walker from doing any more damage to this beautiful state of Wisconsin.
