Thanks, Mason. Nice to hear from you. You might want to have a look at
what we have for the the ballot image.

Karl has already mentioned that we should probably indicate something about
the source (Voting machine or barcode, for example). I tend to agree. We
may add that for the demo, but I'm not sure how many other changes we can
have for the demo. Any other changes would need to be decided upon very
soon. The format for the production system will be different still and you
might want to start thinking about that.
