Paper Ballot Issues

The Chicago Tribune describes some of today's paper ballot problems. The article insinuates that people have a choice between using a touch screen or using a paper ballot. I had no choice. I had to use a paper ballot. I'm actually glad about that because I just feel more secure when there's an actual paper with my choices on it that can be looked at if something goes wrong.

Anyway, I was given a special pen to use, and was asked more than once to bring it back when I was done. I can see how people would walk off with them, but perhaps the poll workers should make sure to ask for them back. Perhaps there should be a pen on a chain thing for people to use so they don't get stolen.
