One other "issue" I meant to include in my previous message.....

   Placement of objects on the printed ballot

The ballot number on the bottom appears to be about 13 mm from the edge. At
the top, it's about 29 mm. Can we make them the same, maybe 10 mm from the

As you have it, the barcode is too far from the side. Keep in mind that the
ballot will be in a folder with a narrow strip with the barcode exposed.
The narrow strip would have to be more than one inch (thats' 25.4 mm for
people with the super-efficient metric system) with the first and last
digits of the ballot number exposed. We need to see none of the ballot
number exposed and the barcode as close as possible to the edge. Can we get
it as close as 5 mm to the edge?

I think the dimensions/font size of the barcode are fine -- just need to be
placed closer to the edge.

Assuming you can get the barcode 5 mm from the edge and with barcode
thickness of about 10 mm, then we'd like the ballot number to be about 16 -
17 mm from the side. Right now, the ballot number on the right is about 18
mm (not bad) but the one on the left is about 23 mm. Some of this may have
to do with my printer, an HP LJ 4. But I see these inconsistencies in the
on-screen PDF file too.

Thanks again.
