Livonia City Clerk Susan Nash indicates that the use of Sharpies to mark ballots did not spoil any votes.

In fact, the use of quick-dry sharpies at Livonia precincts was recommended by the company that provided our tabulators, Dominion Voting Systems. The sharpies were used at the precincts. If there had been any issues with bleeding through on the ballot or spoiling a ballot, that ballot would have been rejected when the voter fed it into the tabulator, letting the voter know immediately.
