We have started counting absentee ballots in Marin. We
are getting a significant number of the following error messages.
NO ENDER MARK - the ballot will usually be taken on the next
NO BACK LEFT TIMING MARK (0 or 52) - these also run on next
try or so.
I've looked at the ballots and find no discernable reason
for them to be stopping or giving this message, as they have all appropriate
I don't expect there's anything to be done, but it could be
looked at prior to next election.
