Choose the layout options: by column, 2 column, flow.
I think I might be reading between the lines here though that you don't want
the candidate columns to have equal height, but instead fill up the first
card column and then a bit of the second.
Short answer, no. Races and headers are rectangular in GEMS. This is
called "tiling" in desk top publishing circles. Imagine dragging a
non-rectangular race around in the ballot editor. From this prospective,
there isn't really even such thing as a card column -- it is just a hint for
auto layout. Races can be dragged around the card with complete freedom.
