Ballot-Box Marble - (Collectibles) The ballot-bow marble was a marble that was either white or black opaque glass. They generally have a pontil mark because they were hand blown. They were used in clubs and lodges for voting in members or on a specific topic to do with the club. If you were black balled it meant that you were not voted in.
