Now that I've taken the time to work with the bit encoding scheme, I
have a few comments.

1) Since up to 3 candidates are allowed in the Cat Catcher field,
doesn't that mean that up to three write-ins should be allowed?

2) Ballot numbers: It occurred to me that some counties may not use
purely digit ballot numbers. For our demo this will not be problem
but we should not make such assumptions in the future!!!
