Consensus of the OVC

I notice that the Wiki says that the design monitor size shall be 17"
measured diagonally. Do we really need a 17" monitor? I personally
think that the approach of showing all or many contests on one screen
is confusing. I personally prefer the approach I've seen used on
DRE's that involve placing only one contest at a time (and preferably
all candidates of that contest) on the screen. I think having one
contest at a time on the screen is less error prone than showing all
contests at one. Isn't that the lesson of the so-called Butterfly
Ballot, don't make multi-column ballots?

Best regards,
