How about the state abbreviation followed by dash followed by county
followed by dash followed by precinct number followed by a dash,
followed by the ballot number.

example:

MA-FRANKLIN-0124-5435.xml

This way we can safely put every ballot in the country in a single
directory and know that we'll never have files overwrite files.
