Was only when I got home I though about it. tha pencil cross could easily be rubbed out and then a cross added to the other box.
6.16 However, the legislation states that unless the way the ballot paper is marked identifies the voter, a ballot paper on which the vote is marked in the following ways must not be rejected if the voter’s intention is clear:
elsewhere than in the proper place
otherwise than by means of a cross, or
by more than one mark

Even if you used a pen, if 'they' wanted to 'they' could just add another 'X' in the other box. Invalidating your vote anyway.....

Our "boxes" are actually scanners that count your vote when you push the ballot through. I don't think they have people counting votes anymore here in Virginia. Many are electronic. Touch screen type votes that get tallied immediately.
