“Election rules should seek to minimize the number of provisional ballots cast."

— Thad E. Hall and Tova Andrea Wang

"The more provisional ballots that are cast by voters, the longer it will take to authenticate the provisional ballots, integrate these ballots with the ballots tabulated on election day, and achieve an accurate vote count," write Hall and Wang in "International Principles of Election Integrity."
