the timing marks do line up with the ovals

I trashed my absentee ballot and got a new one at the polling place. actually I still have the old one here.

at issue is, I believe it's perfectly possible for the timing marks to be read correctly, and thus the ballot is accepted, but for one or more of the actual votes in the ovals to not be read correctly due to the creases. i'm just saying it's technically possible

i talked to the town clerk when I voted. she said the absentee ballots come with score marks on them showing where to fold so they can fit in the envelope for mailing.

bottom line is, we need to get a report from the secretary of state of the number of undervotes for absentee vs. polling place voting. this should indicate if there was any kind of problem. there should be VERY LOW undervotes for president in both cases.
