Re: Thick vertical lines (Minnesota)

Question:  this seems like a significant email that customers should know about as well.  What is the avenue for forwarding this information to customers.  Is the project manager to let all accounts know in a region?  Larry?

Just a warning to all:
If you use thick vertical lines on ballot layout and leave the voting oval in the adjacent column, you will compromise the accuracy of the scanning.  Ballot shift in the reader's paper path will cause false marks to be detected in those voting ovals causing a high number of overvoted races.
Ensure that the vertical line has one voting column of clearance away from any voting ovals.
