Like this: He voted a straight ticket for one party. Then he wanted to deselect two judges he didn’t want to vote for. And he didn’t want to vote for the other party’s candidates.

He complained to the election judge, who, he says, told him the machine did that automatically. The voter told the election judge he didn’t believe it should. She came over and watched the voter deselect the second judge. That one stayed blank.
