OK, I'll take a shot at it...

The same thing that happens if the paper jams in any printer; the staff at
the polling booth would be trained to clear paper jams, and if they are
unable to do so they could either swap in a replacement printer or close the
voting booth. In any case, the voter could re-enter his or her vote and
print a new ballot, which would then be processed.

The OVC system will eliminate repeat votes by a single voter, so even if the
jammed ballot is later accidentally counted, it will not affect the vote

The system will allow a poll worker to record the jammed ballot as "spoiled"
so that the total counts (number of ballots printed, minus spoiled ballots)
match the number of votes counted.
