Ballot card blank on back only

Last week while entertaining visitors in Jefferson Co, KY for the May 23rd election, Dana the County Clerk in Travis Co, TX asked the question " can the AV return a ballot that has no votes on the second side ?"  She means ballots with races on the back but no votes in any of those races.  Her point was can the AV detect a ballot were the voter possibly failed to turn the ballot over? 
A discussion ensued regarding making a header for the second side trigger the condition.
Has anyone ever fielded this question before?
