Re: Ballot Printing - Colors

  • If colored ink is to be used to screen a background color in restricted control areas (i.e., calibration zones, timing marks zones, diagnostic and ID mark zones, and voting oval zones) then the color has to conform to Table T1 in our Ballot Specifications (rev. D Apr, 1996).
  • Control Marks (i.e., timing marks, diagnostic and ID marks) must be printed in a black ink (carbon black for Infra-red use).
  • Text areas and header areas are considered non-restricted zones, and any color can be used in those areas as long as there is an adequate clearance (at least 1/8") from any of the restricted control areas.

Do we have any type of documentation for the type of color ink that printers can use when printing colored ballots???  I am setting up 2 ballots for Cameron, Texas and they wish to print 1 ballot style in Purple & the other ballot style in Blue.  The printer that we are using is Midwest Printing and they have never printed actual colored text, and they wish to know exactly what colored ink to use.
