I got a vote-by-mail ballot. On the separate instructions, it says use ink or pencil when marking your ballot. On the ballot itself, it says to use blue or black ball-point pens. So, my question is: Will a pencil vote count?

Keith Campbell, elections deputy for the Douglas County Clerk’s Office, said election officials prefer voters use a black ball-point pen on their ballots, but a No. 2 pencil or blue pen will also work.

But once you've returned the ballot and used a pencil to fill it in, if you happen to have voted for the "wrong" candidate, it's pretty easy to erase and fill in the "correct" candidate! :-D
