After the normal 4 strokes (intake, compression, power, exhaust) they would squirt a little water into the cylinder. This would give a steam power stroke using the r...

re: Arizona Senate study estimates 200k ballots counted in 2020 with mismatched signatures - M. A. Ryland
The study only looked at 499 ballots and concluded that 60 of them should have been "cured" (contact the voter to confirm the validity of signature). They then extrapolate that fraction to all ~2million ballots to say ~200k probably need extra verification... Pretty tiny study to draw any conc...
