  1. The ornamental design for a hinged paper voting ballot, as shown and described.
Description

FIG. 1 is a front side plan view showing our new design with two parallel sets of spaced apart horizontal lines located in the interior area of the claimed design, which spaced apart horizontal lines correspond to individual perforations extending through the hinged paper voting ballot between the front side and the back side of the hinged paper voting ballot. The rectangles on the front and back of the ballot in FIGS. 1, 2, 4, and 5 are shown as black.

FIG. 2 is a back side plan view thereof.

FIG. 3 is a left side view thereof.

FIG. 4 is a perspective view thereof; and,

FIG. 5 is an enlarged perspective cross-sectional view at the location of two of the perforations through the hinged paper voting ballot at line 55 in FIG. 4, which two perforations have different lengths.

The broken lines shown at the top and bottom of the hinged paper voting ballot in FIGS. 1-4, adjacent the shaded areas, represent the boundaries of the claimed design, while the other broken lines at the top and bottom of the hinged paper voting ballot depict use and environment only, form no part of the claimed design, and illustrate that the design may be applied to paper voting ballots with varying lengths. The broken lines shown along the cross-section in FIG. 5 depict use and environment only, form no part of the claimed design, and represent the interior portions of the material comprising the paper voting ballot. The broken lines showing the breakaway of the portion of the ballot in FIG. 5 form no part of the claimed design.
