I have received 6 Blackballs

In my jurisdiction we know if there was only one black cube or more than one black cube. If there is only one black cube a second ballot must be taken to insure that the black cube was not a mistake. If there is more than one black cube there is no second ballot. However, we can not know how many more than two black cubes there are.
That really makes the most sense.

Under GLoTX, it takes 3 blackballs to reject but the WM will announce the ballot as being "Unfavorable" and state that the petitioner is rejected for one, two, or three years. This tells us that the ballot contained 3 (1 year), 4 (2 years), or 5 or more (3 years) blackballs.

Same here in Virginia.
