Voting is sexy

VOTE! 

Peel your eyes away from your RSS reader, and go vote. If you voted already, then you can keep reading ;)


Every jurisdiction handles the actual voting process differently, but imagine for a second that you actually signed a paper ballot with a fountain pen. What pen/ink combo would you use?

  1. Well, I actually signed my absentee ballot with an EF Pelikan Pura loaded with Noodler's X-Feather. Does that count?

  3. I would probably use the same pen I used to sign the closing papers for my house, an Ohto F-Spirit loaded with Noodler's Baystate blue.

  4. Still waiting on polls to open here... If there was ever a time for a fraud proof ink, this would be it. If only it could work on the politicians as well.

    Maybe Noodler's Bad Black Moccasin in a "Reform" 1745.

  5. Platinum Preppy fine (0.3mm)point with Noodler's Manjiro Nakahama Whaleman's sepia forge resistant ink.

  6. Noodler's Violet Vote seems appropriate!

  7. I was lucky enough to have a paper ballot with the instruction to use black ink! Green striated 1930's Sheaffer balance filled with vintage Sheaffer Skrip permanent black!

  8. I used my Visconti Homo Sapiens with Montblanc blue-black ink to sign the registration form. In Chicago we use paper ballots, but you have yo use a special indelible marker with it.

  9. I just voted this afternoon, and used a paper ballot. However, it required the use of a ballpoint. What a tease! I had my Sheaffer 300 all ready to go, but wasn't allow to use it. :(

  10. Like Andy, I'd use the pen I used to sign closing papers: my father's Waterman Phileas with Noodler's Legal Lapis.

  11. Sadly, my polling place makes us use a black ink, ball point pen to fill in little ovals, and to sign in to the place too. Otherwise, I'd have used my Waterman Charleston, and blue-black ink.

  16. I did.
    Black ink in a Waterman pen. It was a gift, so I don't know the make.
