My Dad predicted decades ago that we might end up with Third World style ballots where the political parties become known by their logos (eg Jackass for the democrat party). The 'voters' simply make a mark by the logo of the party they favor.
Kind of the ultimate 'generic' ballot.

(O beautiful for patriot dream - that sees beyond the years)
Actually its pretty interesting. I suspect that other States have this but LOuisiana has a ton of Black political organizations that puts people on their sample ballots they pass out to the voters or give to the voters right before they vote. Its extremely important to get on the right ballot. Anyway, what is important on the ballots is the numbers by each persons name. In fact I have seen sample ballots with just numbers. So people who can't read vote by the numbers
