What does "different color ink" mean?

edmo: What does "different color ink" mean?


Yeah, are they implying that a witness using a different pen invalidates the ballot?

edmo: What does "different color ink" mean?


They're talking about if the date and the signature are written with different pens.

Some dumbasses think that:
A) there is no possible explanation for such a discrepancy BESIDES rampant fraud, and
B) there are enough envelopes like that to prove Trump is king for life

The pen is mightier than the s-word.

Presumably it means that envelopes with signatures with a different color ink than the voter signature might suggest that the witness did not actually witness the voter signing the envelope, although all it really means is that the witness didn't use the same pen.

Jokes on them. I sign my name, one letter at a time, like they do when it's something super official. But all my pens are different colors, so it looks like a 4th grade girl's signature.

Definitely epic trolling right there. Ice cream, indeed!

Now they will be looking at their wrist bands wishing they were at home instead of being assholes in public.

So weird, it's not like there's a reason people might not want to touch the same pen in 2020. Definitely fraud.

"I thought Hillary would appreciate the birthday message". "Surveyors marks" "it's not about race"

Finally the GOP gets a nice insult thrown in their face, with a super-obvious lie to explain it.

Exactly. I always use my own pen. Not because I'm an elitist or anything, but because there's a 95% chance I'll steal yours.

I can't remember the comedian: "To get out of a ticket, pick your nose. The cop has to let you use HIS pen for your signature to be valid."

I doubt a judge will uphold the different ink thing. Witnesses commonly sign important documents using whatever pen they happen to have in their hand. There can't possibly be precedent that says a witness signature is invalid because they didn't use the same pen.

If they use different colors the spell won't work.

Especially during a pandemic, when lots of people don't feel great about sharing things like pens to begin with.

At my lawyer's office back in July they were just buying boxes and boxes of Bic pens. You either kept the pen or they chucked it since it's easier than sanitizing it.

This will crack you up. In Florida in 2000 they invalidated unambiguous double marked ballots. If you voted for Gore and wrote in Gore, your ballot was disallowed.

They always look for idiotic reasons to disenfranchise people. Mostly poor people.

My county uses paper ballots.  When I went in to vote, I got handed a Bic Stick pen straight from the box by a poll worker wearing gloves.  And once you touched it, it was yours.  And aside from the pen and the ballot, everything else was configured in such a way that I didn't actually have to touch anything.

Seemed prudent given the circumstances.
