I'm thinking it (the screen you call "multi-contest," which I would call
"full-faced ballot screen") would be more of a navigation aid, and reference
to show which contests have already been done -- and would suit the purposes
of those that want a review screen before they punch "Print Ballot."

>From a programmers perspective, we'd still be using mostly the Pvote
interface (see pvote.org). For reading-impaired voters, they would use
Pvote as-is. For others (i.e., most of us) another mode would be enabled to
allow us to navigate to any contest at random, and to see the whole ballot
at once. This would involve a modification and enhancement of pvote, but
not a complete re-write (my estimate). I need to talk with Ping about it.
