Hi Eron,

Kurt Hyde has been working on a data model for us and we'll probably
hear from him more this weekend. I'm wondering what configuration
information we need for the demo though. It's hard coded to a single
ballot after all. There will be a touch screen system, a "regular" PC
and a RII machine. The touch screen should be just a pointing device
(same as a mouse) and the RII system uses different UI software. Are
you thinking of configuration for the ballot reconciliation system?
