Several voters have expressed concern that the marker used to fill out their ballots may have caused them difficulty voting in this year’s election.

ABC15 received several messages on Election Day and into Wednesday that many polling places offered Sharpies to those voting in person. However, there were reports that some Sharpie-filled ballots were not counted, while others who used ballpoint pen had no issues.
