Ballpoints versus Sharpies

CodeMonkeyZWhy were ballpoint pens recommended before election day, but "Markers" NEEDED on election day?

Assuming this email (pictured at the link) is genuine, it sets up the same two-tiered voting system argument used in PA and other states. Especially if one or the other type of pen can be shown to perform differently.

Remember, the claim is that 1) Sharpies are more likely to result in spoiled ballots via bleed-through, 2) poll workers are accused of not letting voters cure spoiled ballots, or encouraging them to discard the spoiled ballot errors, and 3) voters on election day are more likely to be Trump voters.

That makes a difference in marking device on election day suspicious.
