Re: How dark is a mark?

Scanners usually have a calibration function which lets you adjust for how dark
the mark has to be.

And by the way, that's another attack vector. The Diebold scanners are
calibrated by running a sheet through them with present darknesses on the
ovals. You could probably miscalibrate the machine to under-read ballots in
some locations.

Government is the servant of the people, and not the master of them. The
people, in delegating authority, do not give their public servants the right
to decide what is good for the people to know and what is not good for them to
know. We insist on remaining informed so that we may retain control over the
instruments of government we have created.
