Good for you. I look forward to seeing what you come up with. Don't
forget to include the system with which the ballots are prepared.
Mistakes preparing the ballots are quite common. Will you use rulers
and pens? Three by five cards for a database? You will have a
database, won't you?

Or will you use a computer with a database to prepare the ballot? If
so, will the database software be open source? I hope it will be free
open source software and very high quality. That way, OVC can
incorporate it into our Election Management System. When do you think
you'll have that part of it done?

Alan D.
