( nr. 128 ) VOTING PENCILS - there were special pencils in the voting booths - short, black, soft and blunt with the SHAW'S BALLOT PENCIL trademark. Wondering what might be special about them, I made a test writing on the back of the poll card and found no 'resistance' to a rubber eraser compared to ordinary pencils.
I suppose the recommended use of pencils in school exams in UK is in the same category.
I found the company: http://www.shaws.co.uk/
