View Full Version : Invisible ink on Ballot
Just watched a report on WTTW11 about an polling place in Chicago where the election judge told 20 plus voters that the pen(for a touch screen) used invisible ink and they bought it!!

Apparently, said city election board spokesman James Allen, the poll workers told incredulous voters—including one spouse of an election judge—that the stylus used for touch-screen voting was actually an inkless pen to fill out paper ballots.
"You spend months trying to prepare for every contingency," Allen said. "Trying to anticipate every possible way people might be confused . . . then this? Incredible."
Even the ballot scanning machine knew better, he said, rejecting all 20 ballots as blank.
"Each time, the judges overrode the scanner and recorded the vote," he said.
By 3 p.m., only five of the 20 voters had been contacted to return to recast their votes.
"I'm incredibly angry, and I feel so dumb," said Amy Carlton, 38, of Rogers Park. "And I am not a dumb person."

It is not the invisible ink but at the same time it is new touch screen technology in which at the place where you put the pen the screen automatically display the pen lines in there. It is same like bio-metrics.
