At least the DCist correspondent concurred with my observations:

At precinct 84 (Stuart Hobson Middle School): The amount of early morning voters was normal. The hiccup was that the optical scanner had jammed and two poll workers were trying to make it work again. Some people ended up turning their ballots upside down and leaving them in a pile on a piano next to the scanner. Eventually someone in line spoke up about them needing to unlock the slot in front of the scanner so people could vote while they fix it. They did unlock it and everyone put their ballot in the slot. Not sure how these unscanned ballots will be counted. On top of all that, they didn't hand out "I voted" stickers. - Kelly Rand
