In California, provisional ballots ARE placed into the ballot
box, at least in those counties that have ballot boxes anyway.
Whether DRE counties also have ballot boxes I am not sure,
although since state law allows people with absentee ballots to
drop them off at precinct polling places, I guess they must. I
should know this, but I don't!
