This is a *feature* not a bug. The ballot is designed to run at
1280x1024, and not at any other resolution.

FWIW, I tried running on my Powerbook, and couldn't figure out how to
make it display on my external 1280x1024 screen (the Powerbook creates
a multi-screen virtual display, but the laptop screen is only
1280x854). I tried changing the code to fit on the laptop screen,
which displayed, but the clicks didn't line up with the bubbles. I
didn't make much of that one way or the other. I haven't worked with
PyGame before though, so didn't know what to look for in the code (I
figured out the constants for screen size in the first few lines :-)).

My Linux box also has a 1280x1024 (flat screen) display (really, my SOs
machine; but I'm "root"). I should try that... but first I need to
write about PEAK for a deadline weighing heavily.

Yours, David...
