Hello All:
 
Would the OVC EVM aid in the casting of provisional ballots? I could see a routine, when triggered somehow, that marks across the face of the ballot PROVISIONAL and prints out the proper affadavit language for the voter to sign.
 
I understand that the voter puts their provisional ballot into an envelope. Typically what happense to the envelope after that? Is it placed (envelope and all) into the ballot box? I could see this decreasing the likelihood that these provisional ballots would get 'lost'.
 
Thanks, Ed Kennedy
