People are still quite error prone with this method as well, unfortunately.

It would not be uncommon to find more then one alternative selected 
when only one is expected...of course, along with this would likely 
be some kind of attempt by the voter to correct the mistake which 
would then likely end up in front of a judge.

Personally, I believe the greatest opportunity for error proof voting 
is use computer based voting.
