Rubber or plastic for Mahoning voters

By David Skolnick (Contact)


Published March 4, 2008

YOUNGSTOWN — Rubber or plastic?

In the November 2007 election, voters were given plastic-tipped styluses to use on Mahoning County touch-screen machines if their fingers proved ineffective. The board of elections received numerous complaints because the styluses weren’t terribly effective.
The board tried something new at the polls today — pencil erasers.
“Everyone loved it,”  said Robert Wasko, elections board chairman.
The pencils came in either blue or red, not necessarily blue for Democrats and red for Republicans, and read: “Your Vote Counts! Mahoning Co. Board of Elections.”
As an added bonus, voters got to keep their styluses.
Board Director Thomas McCabe joked that the pencils for the next election would have amusing sayings by him. When asked for one, McCabe was speechless.
