STYLUS PROBLEM IN BLOWING ROCK PRECINCT. From a B'Rock poll greeter, minutes ago:
"It's been steady all through the morning, though lines were longer very early before 7 am. I know of at least one instance at BR precinct where a card's holes did not punch (I think the stylus was defective), and the gentleman got away before they caught him, but I think someone knew him, so hopefully they called him back to come and try again. The stylus problem was discovered later while I was standing outside and someone was trying to vote curbside -- and they reported that the 'metal piece' was missing, so it wasn't punching -- they got her a new pad/stylus."
