Steve is on the right
track – this is an in-house operation on a weekly basis. They want a template to work from that
can be customized and preferably (re)printed in house.

They generally print up about 20,000
ballots at a time, and are using another company who does it for 18
cents. We make about 6 cents on it. Why do they need a service
bureau to print a simple AccuVote tape? They just run the ballots through
an AccuVote at the school and print a report. Then use the same memory
card and AccuVote at the next election the next week. What's to service

What is the average
number of ballots per school election??? If the number of ballots per
election is small and you were able to use Gems, why not do it as a complete
service with programming & ballot on demand???

Subject: ballot shell question
A prospect runs school
elections in a very large Florida County to the tune of some 25,000 ballots a
year and averages two school elections a week across their county.
What experience, if any, do
we have at printing a ballot shell with a single column, single row of ovals
(say up to 12) and a blank header area.
The idea is for the county to then print candidate names and school name
in the appropriate area onto the shell customized to each election using in
house MS Word and a connected printer.
I would also assume it would be a single database shell, replicated and used over and over with the county
replacing names and headers for each election. Maybe we could provide candidate 1, candidate 2, candidate 3
in the database and they could change the names for each election.
As I read this now, I’m
certain it’s not real clear.
But if you have got the
gist of this please advise if this is doable.
