I don't see the 57" either--sounds like a 57" straw man. Unless a
significant percentage of the races are IRV, I see no problem getting 80
races all on one 8.5 x 11 sheet. Try three newspaper width columns (2.25
in) with 10 point times.

If you can get me the 76 race ballot, I'll lay it out that way to make sure.
We can also go to legal sized and/or smaller type. The point size may be
set by law although I note that our OCT special ballot had the 135 candidate
names in about 6 point type.

Worse case, we can go to multiple page ballots.
