Return of the Dimples

In an article in the Cleveland Plain Dealer about how many provisional votes to throw away, we also learn:

Summit County election board members spent more than an hour discussing the effects of dimples and piercings on the punch-card ballots used in the county. In discussing 31 so-called "damaged" ballots which were either torn or placed incorrectly into the voting machine by voters the two Democratic board members were more inclined to count dimples impressions made in the ballot by the stylus. But the two Republican board members balked, favoring piercings instead, where the stylus had perforated the ballot.
