Yeah... Avi said so at the symposium too. I got the impression he
hadn't seen our sample ballot before, and he was one of those who had
doubts (not that he made a huge point of it, and I stated it was a
non-essential design feature). But Doug Kellner, supervisor of
elections for NYC, expressed about the same sentiment. I take Doug's
impression VERY seriously: he runs the biggest jurisdiction in the USA.
  And of course, I take our own Doug (Jones) serious too.
