Good idea. Might as well get this done right away. For the demo, when we
run the ballots through the BRP, I expect we'll use a small sample... maybe
25-50 ballots. We should also have a set handy that has a more normal
number for a precinct (500 is about the average number per precinct).

So, for the small sample, I suggest 5-10 electronic ballot images (EBIs)
from maybe 5 different voting machines. For the larger sample, let's have
about 70 EBIs from about 7 machines (all from the same precinct).

Originally, I wanted to have a county-wide data set so we could demonstrate
vote aggregation/tabulation at that level. This task has turned out to be
too much trouble for now. I wouldn't rule this out, but I'd say we do
something with it time-permitting.
