Are there problems with using multiple 1D barcodes? Unless we're looking at
requiring truly massive amounts of data, it seems to me that adding a second
1D barcode to the ballot seem to be easier/cheaper to handle than going to
2D barcodes, so perhaps two scans on a ballot might be better than requiring
somewhat more expensive and slightly harder to use scanners?

Of course, 2D barcodes are well understood in the industry, so it's not
_bad_ to use them; they just cost more and require a little more training
than dirt cheap 1D scanners.

180 bits is right about at the limit of practical 1-D codes. So yeah,
there are a lot of of ways we might require 2-D.
