Voting Edit

A punch card is a voting method that makes use of a ballot, a vote-recording device that keeps the ballot in place and allows the voter to punch holes in it, a privacy booth, and a computerized tabulation device. The voter inserts a machine-readable card with prescored numbered boxes representing ballot choices into the vote-recording device and uses a stylus to punch out the appropriate prescored boxes. The ballot must be properly aligned in the vote-recording device for the holes in the ballot card to be punched all the way through. Punch card ballots are counted by a computerized tabulation device.
