I have a question about terminology. If some one says the "question" is repeated on the printout, does this mean, literally "proposition 7" or does it mean "Shall a 4.6 million dollar bridge repair revolving fund be established". On your sample ballot you use the former definition of repeating the "question" is that what that term means?

I didn't do that one, but I did Steve Chessin's example, which is the
longest ballot I've actually seen.

44 contests with 64 possible selections total:

Here's the layout I did. I set it up for 3 columns, 10 point Times, 8.5 X
11. I only used 2 columns. I left room in the corners for the ballot ID and
there would be room on the edge for the barcode. I would have needed three
columns if I had spelled out the Proposition and Measure titles.
