Thanks for the link to the ballots, I happen to be thinking about a
security issue today. If we will be electronically signing ballots, the
ballot number will be an important part of the message that should be
signed. Otherwise someone could take a ballot and its signature file
and duplicate it any number of times. With the ballot number in the
signed message, this tactic will be easy to detect.

Based on the sample xml files on the server, it looks like this will not
be an issue since each ballot has a unique number in the file.
