Voting in Pencil?

I went to vote in the Oxford school bond election this morning. I voted "yes," and am fairly certain the bond will pass. The vote was taken on paper ballots. I couldn't help but notice that most of the ballot booths were only equipped with No. 2 pencils. Mississippi law requires that ballots be marked only with pen or indelible pencil. Numerous court cases have thrown out ballots cast with pencil.

Oh well, perhaps I'm the only one who noticed!
